Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or PCD (Point Cloud Library) 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.
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 XYZ file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the PCD to XYZ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your PCD to XYZ.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PCD file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PCD to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.
We aim to process all PCD 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.
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 PCD file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our PCD 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.

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