Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model LWO Files to XYZ

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or LWO (LightWave Object File) model files to a standard XYZ (Point Cloud) 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 XYZ file and will be ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the LWO to XYZ conversion process, see the conversion information section below.

How to Convert your LWO to XYZ Online?

Here are two simple steps to convert your LWO to XYZ.

Upload a LWO

Click the "Upload a LWO File" button and select a LWO to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.

Download your XYZ

Click the download link once completed to receive your XYZ file.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my LWO file to XYZ?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your LWO file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the LWO to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my LWO to XYZ?

We aim to process all LWO to XYZ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.

How accurate is the LWO to XYZ conversion?

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.

Is it safe to convert my LWO to XYZ on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the LWO file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert LWO to XYZ on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our LWO to XYZ tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

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.

My LWO file contains textures, how do I upload these?

If your LWO file has separate texture (PNG, JPG etc.) files, you can place these additional files, along with the LWO file within a ZIP or other compressed archive file and upload this.

I have several LWO files; can I batch convert my LWO to XYZ?

Yes! Our LWO tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 and LWO files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the XYZ files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.

Description

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 the television and film production of 3D digital effects.

The LightWave software is still a popular choice for 3D modeling and digital effects, with the most recent version being released in 2021. The format can contain 3D model or mesh information along with material and animations.

LWO Notes

If your LWO file is uploaded with accompanying texture files, these will be included in the conversion process.

Description

The XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, and Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modeling of terrain for later processing in 3D modeling applications.

As the format only contains positional information, a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.

XYZ Notes

Only vertex information will be saved to the XYZ Point Cloud file generated by our tool; all other information, such as faces and material colors, will be discarded in the final file due to this information not being supported.

When creating a preview of the XYZ file, our tool will render the Point Cloud as individual squares.
