View 3D 3MF Files Online

Use this free tool to view your 3D 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) files online without needing to install any software. Our 3MF viewer tool will generate a real-time 3D preview of your 3MF file with Pan and Zoom controls, allowing you to see your 3D model from any angle.

Our 3MF viewing tool can load most 3MF files, and we are working on improvements all the time to improve compatibility with all file formats. If you are looking to convert your 2D image files to 3D files, such as STL, then we have a 2D to 3D conversion tool here.

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 and compressed with 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.
