DAE is an interactive 3D file format used for exchanging digital assets between various 3D modeling systems and game engines.
The DAE format was created using COLLADA XML architecture, which is an open standard for transmitting digital assets between graphic applications, and now owned and developed by Khronos Group.
The following software can be used to view, alter, and process DAE: Bentley Systems MicroStation, Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk 3ds Max with the ColladaMax plugin, and Autodesk Maya with the ColladaMaya plugin.
3DXML is an open-standard proprietary 3D file format developed and supported by Dassault Systemes. 3DXML files are typically created as exports from Dassault Systemes' 3DEXPERIENCE application. The 3DXML file is a zip archive file consisting of a BOM file and one or more 3D representations stored in either XML or binary format. Compact file size allows users to transfer 3D XML quickly and embed it into websites, emails, and various MS Office documents. Therefore, the format is commonly used to integrate 3D data into technical documentation.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
