Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model PCD Files to GLB

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or PCD (Point Cloud Library) model files to a standard GLB (Graphics Language Transmission 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 PCD files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my PCD file to GLB?

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

How long does it take to convert my PCD to GLB?

We aim to process all PCD to GLB 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 PCD to GLB 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 PCD to GLB on ImageToStl.com?

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

Can I convert PCD to GLB on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our PCD to GLB 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 PCD 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.

I have several PCD files; can I batch convert my PCD to GLB?

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

Description

PCD files are a Point Cloud 3D format created to enable high-speed loading and saving of Point Cloud data to either a text-based format or a compressed binary format.

The format can be either text-based or binary. In the text format, point coordinates are stored on a single line with an option color value. The file contains a header section that defines the data fields that are present in both text and binary formats.

Description

The GLB file format, which can also have the GLTF file extension depending on whether the content is binary or text/JSON, is a 3D file format used to describe 3D worlds and, as such, contains geometric data such as vertices, faces, normals, animations, and other 3D scene-related data.

The format, described by its creators as the "JPEG of 3D", has gained in popularity and is supported by a wide range of 3D modeling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard that is maintained by the Khronos Group.

GLB Notes

If your original model file contains texture images and other texture-related data, these will be included in the final GLB file.
