Convert PLY to U3D via Python

Render PLY as U3D without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert PLY to U3D Using Python

In order to convert PLY to U3D, 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 PLY to U3D via Python

Python programmers can easily load & convert PLY files to U3D in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load PLY file via the from_file of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of U3dSaveOptions
  3. Set U3D specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call the Scene.save method
  5. Pass the output path with U3D file extension & object of U3dSaveOptions
  6. Check resultant U3D 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.

    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.

    u3d What is u3d File Format

    U3D (Universal 3D) is a compressed file format and data structure for 3D computer graphics. It contains 3D model information such as triangle meshes, lighting, shading, motion data, lines and points with color and structure. The format was accepted as ECMA-363 standard in August 2005. 3D PDF documents support U3D objects embedding and can be viewed in Adobe Reader (version 7 and onwards). U3D format was developed keeping in view the aim to establish a universal standard for three-dimensional data storage and exchange. However, the format finds its main utilization in encoding for 3D PDF rather than being used as an interchange format. Acrobat 3D converts a supported 3D file type to either U3D or PRC upon conversion into the PDF.
