Use this free tool to view your 3D OBJ (Wavefront) files online without needing to install any software. Our OBJ viewer tool will generate a real-time 3D preview of your OBJ file with Pan and Zoom controls allowing you to see your 3D model from any angle.
Our OBJ viewing tool can load most OBJ 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.
Here are 2 simple steps to display your OBJ file in any web browser.
First, click the "Upload..." button and select the OBJ file you wish to view. Once your OBJ file has been received it will be displayed in your browser.
We aim to process all OBJ file viewing requests as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger or more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate rendition of your OBJ file 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 OBJ file you submit. The generated preview file within your browser is deleted after 15 minutes,
Yes! Our OBJ file viewer will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to use our file viewing tools.
If your OBJ file has separate material (MTL) and texture (PNG, JPG etc.) files, you can drag and drop these onto the upload tool along with the main OBJ file. Our tool will intelligently detect which of these additional files belong with the OBJ file. Alternatively, you can place these additional files, along with the OBJ file within a ZIP or other compressed archive file and upload that.
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.
