Convert 3MF to OBJ via Python

Render 3MF as OBJ without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert 3MF to OBJ Using Python

In order to convert 3MF to OBJ, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for Python via .NET

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

NuGet

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

Command line


pip install aspose-3d

Steps to Convert 3MF to OBJ via Python

Python programmers can easily load & convert 3MF files to OBJ in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load 3MF file via the from_file of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of ObjSaveOptions
  3. Set OBJ specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call the Scene.save method
  5. Pass the output path with OBJ file extension & object of ObjSaveOptions
  6. Check resultant OBJ file at specified path

System Requirements

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

  • Microsoft Windows or Linux based OS.
  • Python 3.5 or later.
  • Aspose.3D for Python 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.

    3MF What is 3MF File Format

    3MF, 3D Manufacturing Format, is used by applications to render 3D object models to a variety of other applications, platforms, services and printers. It was built to avoid the limitations and issues in other 3D file formats, like STL, for working with the latest versions of 3D printers. 3MF is relatively a new file format that has been developed and published by the 3MF consortium. It is rich enough to fully describe a model, retaining internal information, colour, and other characteristics that makes it extensible for supporting new innovations in 3D printing. The format is extensible, able to be broadly adopted and free of issues besetting other widely used file formats.

    obj What is obj File Format

    OBJ files are used by Wavefront's Advanced Visualizer application to define and store the geometric objects. Backward and forward transmission of geometric data is made possible through OBJ files. Both polygonal geometry like points, lines, texture vertices, faces and free-form geometry (curves and surfaces) are supported by OBJ format. This format does not support animation or information related to light and position of scenes. An OBJ file is usually an end product of the 3D modeling process generated by a CAD (Computer Aided Design). The default order to store vertices is counter-clockwise avoiding explicit declaration of face normals. Though OBJ files declare scale information in a comment line yet no units have been declared for OBJ coordinates.
