Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or LWO (LightWave Object File) model files to a standard 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple LWO files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
To convert your LWO file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a 3MF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the LWO to 3MF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your LWO to 3MF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your LWO file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the LWO to 3MF conversion has completed, you can download your 3MF file straight away.
We aim to process all LWO to 3MF conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the LWO file you submit to us. The resulting 3MF file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our LWO to 3MF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our LWO conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
Yes! Our LWO tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 LWO files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the 3MF files individually or download them all in a single Zip file.
|Full Name||LightWave Object File|
The LWO or LightWave 3D Object file is a 3D graphics file format originally released in 1990 and available for the Amiga, Mac OS and Windows. The LightWave software was developed by NewTek and is used in Television and Film production of 3D digital effects.
The LightWave software is still a popular choice for 3D modelling and digital effects with the most recent version being released in 2021. The format can contain 3D model/mesh information along with Material and Animations.
If your LWO file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
|Full Name||3D Manufacturing Format|
3MF files are a modern 3D file format designed specifically for use with 3D printable models (additive manufacturing). It was designed to be the successor to the popular legacy STL format (also a common format in 3D printing) to overcome the limitations of that format.
The format of 3MF files is XML based that are compressed with the standard Zip file compression resulting in small, easily transferable files. The format supports 3D meshes along with associated materials and textures all contained within the Zip file.
3MF files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the 3MF file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
