Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model SCAD Files to OBJ

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or SCAD (OpenSCAD) model files to a standard OBJ (Wavefront) 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 SCAD file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a OBJ file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the SCAD to OBJ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

Description

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.

Description

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.

As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.

SCAD Notes

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.
