Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a SCAD (OpenSCAD) 3D model file and from this, create an animated GIF (Animated) (Graphics Interchange Format) file that you can then download and share without the need for any complex 3D modelling software.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an GIF (Animated) file from a SCAD file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SCAD file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SCAD to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all SCAD to GIF 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 and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the SCAD file you submit to us. The resulting GIF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our SCAD to GIF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our SCAD 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.
The OpenSCAD file format or SCAD is the native file format of the popular free CAD software OpenSCAD used for creating 3D CAD models. The SCAD software is still in active development with new features being added with each version.
SCAD files are text based files containing script which allows the designer to describe the CAD model programmatically. SCAD files are then compiled to produce the final 3D render.
SCAD files when imported will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces. If the SCAD file contains color information this will be converted where possible.
|Full Name||Graphics Interchange Format|
GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes upto 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
