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, 3DS (reading only), three.js JSON (writing only), XML3D (writing only), and STL

FAQQ: can you publish the source code for meshconv?
A: sorry, the program is part of a large codebase, it would take too much of my time to make it open source.
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.
meshconv uses the lib3ds library for reading .3ds files.
FeedbackPlease send me e-mail (to patrick.n.min at gmail dot com) with your questions/comments/suggestions/bug reports.
I'm also interested to hear about what you use meshconv for.
