Use this free tool to view your 3D PLY (Stanford Triangle Format) files online without needing to install any software. Our PLY viewer tool will generate a real-time 3D preview of your PLY file with Pan and Zoom controls allowing you to see your 3D model from any angle.
Our PLY viewing tool can load most PLY 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 PLY file in any web browser.
First, click the "Upload..." button and select the PLY file you wish to view. Once your PLY file has been received it will be displayed in your browser.
We aim to process all PLY 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 PLY 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 PLY file you submit. The generated preview file within your browser is deleted after 15 minutes,
Yes! Our PLY file viewer will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to use our file viewing tools.
Our tool supports converting from all PLY formats including Text and Binary (both little endian and big endian).
The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994 with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format and also the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text based format.
The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color and other custom data. The format is still in use with many PLY models available to download and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications such as Blender.
