Use our free and fast online tool to convert your SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) image or logo into 3D X (Direct X File) mesh/model files suitable for printing with a 3D printer or for loading into your favourite 3D editing package.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an X file from a SVG file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SVG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SVG to X conversion has completed, you can download your X file straight away.
We aim to process all SVG 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 SVG 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 SVG 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.

Introduced by the W3C organisation in 2001 the SVG file format grew to become the standard web file format for vector based 2D images and is supported by the majority of modern web browsers. SVG files are Xml based text files containing 2D vector elements such as paths, simple shapes, colors and more.
The SVG format itself whilst primarily a vector format can include raster images as well as text. Due to its vector based format SVG files lend themselves very well to website company logos and icons. A compressed format of SVG also exists which uses the extension SVGZ and employs the GZIP compression algorithm.
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.
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.
