Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model PLY Files to IDTF

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or PLY (Stanford Triangle Format) model files to a standard IDTF (PDF With integrated 3D Models) 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 PLY file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a IDTF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the PLY to IDTF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/octet-stream

Format: Text & Binary

Description

The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994 with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format and also the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text based format.

The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color and other custom data. The format is still in use with many PLY models available to download and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications such as Blender.

PLY Notes

If your PLY file contains vertex colors these will be imported and mapped where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Vertex colors
  • Binary and Text versions supported when converting from PLY
  • Binary only version when converting to PLY

Extension: IDTF

Full Name: PDF With integrated 3D Models

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

Description

The IDTF file format is a bespoke format that enables interactive 3D content to be embedded within a PDF document. Currently only Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange Editor are able to render PDF documents that contain this 3D content.

IDTF files are a simple text-based format containing 3D geometry defined using vertices and faces in a structured hierarchy. Prior to importing the IDTF file to the PDF it must be converted to a U3D file format using one of the free applications such as IDTFConverter.

IDTF Notes

Currently only mesh geometry will be carried over from your source model to the final IDTF file for download.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
