Convert AMF to PLY via Python

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

How to Convert AMF to PLY Using Python

In order to convert AMF to PLY, 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 AMF to PLY via Python

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

  1. Load AMF file via the from_file 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 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.

    AMF What is AMF File Format

    Additive Manufacturing file format (AMF) defines open standards for objects description in order to be utilized by additive manufacturing processes such as 3D Printing. CAD programs use the AMF file format by making use of the information such as geometry, color and material of the objects. AMF is different than STL format as the lateral does not support color, materials, lattices, and constellations.

    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.
