Convert FBX to PLY via C#

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

How to Convert FBX to PLY Using C#

In order to convert FBX 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 FBX to PLY via C#

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

  1. Load FBX 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.
