View 3D OBJ Files Online

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.

How to View your OBJ File Online?

Here are two simple steps to display your OBJ file in any web browser.

Upload an OBJ

Click the "Upload a File" button and select an OBJ to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.

View your OBJ

Once processed, your OBJ file will be displayed in the web browser.

File Format Information for OBJ


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 models/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 straightforward to parse in 3D modeling applications. A downside of the text-based format is that the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I view my OBJ file online?

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.

How long does it take to view my OBJ file?

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.

How accurate is the OBJ file viewer?

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.

Is it safe to view my OBJ file on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the OBJ file you submit. The generated preview file within your browser is deleted after 15 minutes,

Can I view my OBJ file on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

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.

My OBJ file contains materials and textures; how do I upload these?

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 belongs to 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.
