Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or VTK (Visualization Toolkit) 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 VTK 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 VTK to OBJ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your VTK to OBJ.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your VTK file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the VTK to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all VTK to OBJ 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 VTK file you submit to us. The resulting OBJ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our VTK to OBJ 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 VTK 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||Visualization Toolkit|
The VTK file format is a 3D modelling and graphics format supported by the Visualization Toolkit. Created in the '90s the Visualization Toolkit provides a series of data and visual tools for advanced 3D modelling applications. Some example functions of the toolkit include polygon simplification, mesh repair and smoothing and more.
The format has evolved over the years. Starting out as a simple text-based format that could be edited within a simple text editor. Additional features have been added over the years with the most recent version of the format supporting an Xml based format.
Our tool will export only polygon or triangle strip based mesh data. Textures and compressed binary data are not supported and will be ignored.
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.
Our tool does not currently support saving material or color information for OBJ files.
