Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or ZIP (ZIP Archive) model files to a standard 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) 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 ZIP file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a 3MF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the ZIP to 3MF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your ZIP to 3MF.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your ZIP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the ZIP to 3MF conversion has completed, you can download your 3MF file straight away.
We aim to process all ZIP to 3MF 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 ZIP file you submit to us. The resulting 3MF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our ZIP to 3MF 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 ZIP 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||ZIP Archive|
The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989 and over time the format has received many revisions.
ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built in support in many operating systems including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
|Full Name||3D Manufacturing Format|
3MF files are a modern 3D file format designed specifically for use with 3D printable models (additive manufacturing). It was designed to be the successor to the popular legacy STL format (also a common format in 3D printing) to overcome the limitations of that format.
The format of 3MF files is XML based that are compressed with the standard Zip file compression resulting in small, easily transferable files. The format supports 3D meshes along with associated materials and textures all contained within the Zip file.
3MF files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the 3MF file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
