Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model OBJ Files to DAE

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or OBJ (Wavefront) model files to a standard DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.

To convert your OBJ file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a DAE file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the OBJ to DAE conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

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

File format information for OBJ to DAE

Extension: OBJ

Full Name: Wavefront

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

Description

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.

As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.

OBJ Notes

Currently our tool does not support importing materials or color information from your OBJ file.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
  • Material colors

Extension: DAE

Full Name: COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/xml

Format: Text

Description

The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes and 3D worlds using a simple text based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.

DAE files are a text/Xml based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to the format.

DAE Notes

DAE files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the DAE file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
  • Animations
