PLY to USDZ conversion using Java library without any 3D modeling software.

How to Convert PLY to USDZ Using Java

In order to render PLY to USDZ, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for Java

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from

Aspose Maven Repository

and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

Steps to Convert PLY to USDZ via Java

Java programmers can easily convert PLY file to USDZ in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load PLY file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Call the method with USDZ’s format.
  3. Check resultant USDZ file at specified path

System Requirements

Before running the Java conversion code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.

  • Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with Java Runtime Environment for JSP/JSF Application and Desktop Applications.
  • Get latest version of Aspose.3D for Java directly from Maven.
  • Java 3D Scene Manipulation Library

    Aspose.3D is a CAD and Gameware API to load, modify and convert 3D files. API is a standalone and does not require any any 3D modeling or rendering software. One can easily use API for USD, Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, FBX (ASCII, Binary), Collada, glTF, PLY, GLB, DirectX and more formats.

    PLY What is PLY File Format

    PLY, Polygon File Format, represents 3D file format that stores graphical objects described as a collection of polygons. The purpose of this file format was to establish a simple and easy file type that is general enough to be useful for a wide range of models. PLY file format comes as ASCII as well as Binary format for compact storage and for rapid saving and loading. The file format is used by different applications that provide support for 3D files reading.

    A file with .usdz is an uncompressed and unencrypetd ZIP archive for the USD (Universal Scene Description) file format that contains and proxies for files of other formats (such as textures, and animations) embedded within the archive and runs them directly with the USD run-time without any need of unpacking. USDZ files are packages whose design is based on the new Ar-level abstraction of a package. Usdz was registered with IANA and has media type name of model and a subtype name of vnd.usd+zip and its details can be found as on IANA registration page.
