Use this free tool to view your 3D PTX (Point Cloud) files online without needing to install any software.
Our tool can load most binary and text based PTX 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 PTX file in any web browser.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PTX file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PTX to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all PTX 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 PTX 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 PTX 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 PTX 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 PTX is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.
As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.
