Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or OFF (Object File Format) model files to a standard PCD (Point Cloud Library) 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 OFF file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a PCD file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the OFF to PCD conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your OFF to PCD.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your OFF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the OFF to PCD conversion has completed, you can download your PCD file straight away.
We aim to process all OFF to PCD 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 being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the OFF file you submit to us. The resulting PCD file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our OFF to PCD tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

The OFF file format is a simple text-based format capable of storing 2D and 3D geometry and was originally developed for the Geomview application. There is also an extension to the OFF format used by the Stella4D application to enable storage of four-dimensional data.
The format can contain common vector information such as vertices, faces, shape, edge information and also has support for including color information. As the format is text based the files can become rather large with no built-in compression options available.
PCD files are a Point Cloud 3D format created to enable high speed loading and saving of Point Cloud data to either text-based format of a compressed binary format.
If your OFF file contains face colors these will be imported and mapped where possible.
