Steps to Convert DAE to PDF via C#

.NET programmers can easily load & convert DAE files to PDF in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load DAE file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of PdfSaveOptions
  3. Set PDF specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call the Scene.Save method
  5. Pass the output path with PDF file extension & object of PdfSaveOptions
  6. Check resultant PDF file at specified path

System Requirements

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

  • Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with .NET Framework, .NET Core, Mono.
  • Development environment like Microsoft Visual Studio.
  • Aspose.3D for .NET DLL referenced in your project.
  • A 3D File Processing Library to manipulate 3D files without any modeling and rendering software. The 3D API supports Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, FBX (ASCII, Binary), STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, Collada, glTF, GLB, PLY, DirectX, Google Draco file formats and more. Developers can create, read, convert, modify and control the substance of 3D document formats easily.

    DAE What is DAE File Format

    A DAE file is a Digital Asset Exchange file format that is used for exchanging data between interactive 3D applications. This file format is based on the COLLADA (COLLAborative Design Activity) XML schema which is an open standard XML schema for the exchange of digital assets among graphics software applications.

    pdf What is pdf File Format

    Portable Document Format (PDF) is a type of document created by Adobe back in 1990s. The purpose of this file format was to introduce a standard for representation of documents and other reference material in a format that is independent of application software, hardware as well as Operating System. PDF files can be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader/Writer as well in most modern browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox via extensions/plug-ins. Most of the commercially available software suites also offer conversion of their documents to PDF file format without the requirement of any additional software component. Thus, PDF file format has full capability to contain information like text, images, hyperlinks, form-fields, rich media, digital signatures, attachments, metadata, Geospatial features and 3D objects in it that can become as part of source document.
