Use this free tool to view your 3D DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) files online without needing to install any software.
Our tool can load most binary and text based DAE files. If you are looking to convert your 2D image files to 3D STL files then we have a 2D to 3D conversion tool here.
Here are 2 simple steps to display your DAE file in any web browser.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DAE file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DAE to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all DAE to STL 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 DAE file you submit to us. The resulting STL file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DAE to STL 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 DAE 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.
The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes and 3D worlds using a simple text based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.
DAE files are a text/Xml based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to the format.
