File format information for OBJ to PNG

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: PNG

Full Name: Portable Network Graphics

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/png

Format: Binary

Description

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
