Use our free and fast online tool to convert your TIF (Tag Image File Format) image or logo into 3D XYZ (Point Cloud) 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 XYZ file from a TIF file.
The TIF image you upload can be any size, however our tool will resize it to a maximum of 600x600 pixels for normal users and for those who have paid for a premium subscription this is increased to a maximum of 1000x1000 pixels.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TIF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the TIF to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.
We aim to process all TIF to XYZ 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 TIF file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our TIF to XYZ 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 TIF 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.
|Full Name||Tag Image File Format|
The TIF file extension is a raster graphics file format originally created in 1986 making it one of the older image file formats available. The format was created by Aldus Corporation (Now Adobe) for use in Desktop Publishing software is still a popular format which is still in use today.
The format has evolved over time from its original use in DTP applications, Fax machine software, Optical Character Recognition software and more. TIF files are binary and can contain one or more images arranged in a rectangular data format within the file.
|Full Name||Point Cloud|
|Type||3D Model/Point Cloud|
The XYZ 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.
Only vertex information will be saved to the XYZ Point Cloud file generated by our tool, all other information such as faces and material colors will be discarded in the final file due to this information not being supported.
When creating a preview of the XYZ file our tool will render the Point Cloud as individual squares.
