Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or SCAD (OpenSCAD) model files to a standard X (Direct X File) 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 X file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the SCAD to X conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your SCAD to X.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SCAD file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SCAD to X conversion has completed, you can download your X file straight away.
We aim to process all SCAD to X 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 SCAD file you submit to us. The resulting X file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our SCAD to X tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.
The X 3D file format extension was introduced by Microsoft with the launch of Version 2 of their 3D graphics API Direct X back in 2002. The format has evolved over the years however in 2014 the X file format was deprecated in favour of newer more capable formats such as FBX.
The format is a simple text based file capable of storing 3D mesh information such as vertices, faces, normals and material information. In addition to basic 3D information the format can also store animations with the X file format primarily used in the development of games.
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.
X files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the X file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
