View 3D DAE Files Online

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

Our DAE viewing tool can load most DAE 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.

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 it.
