Convert DXF to PLY via C#

Render DXF as PLY without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert DXF to PLY Using C#

In order to convert DXF to PLY, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for .NET

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use document manipulation and conversion API for C# platform. Open

NuGet

package manager, search for Aspose.3D and install. You may also use the following command from the Package Manager Console.

Package Manager Console Command


PM> Install-Package Aspose.3D

Steps to Convert DXF to PLY via C#

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

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

    DXF What is DXF File Format

    DXF, Drawing Interchange Format, or Drawing Exchange Format, is a tagged data representation of AutoCAD drawing file. Each element in the file has a prefix integer number called a group code. This group code actually represents the element that follows and indicates the meaning of a data element for a given object type. DXF makes it possible to represent almost all user-specified information in a drawing file. DXF file format was developed by Autodesk as CAD data file format for data interoperability between AutoCAD and other applications. Thus, data can be imported from other formats to DXF to AutoCAD as per the DXF file format interoperability specifications.

    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.
