View 3D XYZ Files Online

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

Our XYZ viewing tool can load most XYZ 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 XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, and Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modeling of terrain for later processing in 3D modeling 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.
