Convert GLB to DAE via C#

Render GLB as DAE without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert GLB to DAE Using C#

In order to convert GLB to DAE, 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


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 GLB to DAE via C#

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

  1. Load GLB file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Call the Scene.Save method with DAE’s format.
  3. Check resultant DAE 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.

    GLB What is GLB File Format

    GLB is the binary file format representation of 3D models saved in the GL Transmission Format (glTF). Information about 3D models such as node hierarchy, cameras, materials, animations and meshes in binary format. This binary format stores the glTF asset (JSON, .bin and images) in a binary blob. It also avoids the issue of increase in file size which happens in case of glTF. GLB file format results in compact file sizes, fast loading, complete 3D scene representation, and extensibility for further development. The format uses model/gltf-binary as MIME type.

    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. It has been adopted by ISO as a publicly available specification, ISO/pAS 17506. DAE files can be opened in applications such as Adobe Photoshop, AutoDesk Maya, AutoDesk AutoCAD, and APIs such as Aspose.CAD.
