Create compressed ZIP files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PTX (Point Cloud) file and compress and convert this file to a ZIP (ZIP Archive) file that you can then download and edit/use within your applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your PTX to ZIP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PTX file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PTX to ZIP conversion has completed, you can download your ZIP file straight away.
We aim to process all PTX to ZIP 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 PTX file you submit to us. The resulting ZIP file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our PTX to ZIP tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Full Name: Point Cloud
Type: 3D Model
Mime Type: text/plain
The PTX 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.
The PTX file format was designed to store vertex information only to allow the construction of simple Point Cloud models.
Full Name: ZIP Archive
Mime Type: application/zip
The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989 and over time the format has received many revisions.
ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built in support in many operating systems including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
