[meshconv] 3D model converter
binvox thinvox viewvox meshconv
Introductionmeshconv converts to and from several popular 3D file formats. Currently only geometry conversion is supported.
- input and output formats:
- nearly 100% VRML 2.0 support (input 2.0, output 1.0 and 2.0)
- simple geometry only support for Wavefront OBJ, Geomview OFF, Autocad DXF, PLY and STL
Downloadversion 0.8, added 29 Apr 2013
- Linux executable
- Linux 64 bit executable
both Linux executables compiled under Fuduntu, kernel 3.8.5, let me know if it doesn't work for you
- Windows executable
compiled using a cross-compiler
- Mac OS X (Snow Leopard) executable
compiled under OS X 10.6.8
(the binaries have been compressed using the UPX
executable compressor)(they are self-decompressing)
(after download on Linux/Mac, you may have to do chmod 755 meshconv first)
UsageRun meshconv without parameters for a usage summary.
Example: to convert a VRML 2.0 model to PLY, triangulated:
meshconv -c ply -tri mymodel.wrl
Note to Windows users: meshconv is a commandline tool, which means it must be run from a command shell. In Windows, start a command shell with Start → Run → cmd (enter), then use the cd command to change to the folder where you have meshconv.exe and the model you want to convert.
CreditIf you use meshconv for your (published) work, please add a reference to me and to this web page. I'd love to hear what you use meshconv for as well.
Note that meshconv is free to download and use (in any environment). However, you are not allowed to charge others for the program. Type meshconv -license for more information.

I'm also interested to hear about what you use meshconv for.
