Learn how to convert OBJ to CADMATIC with CAD Exchanger
OBJ is a geometry definition file format (.obj extension) first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package.
The OBJ file format is a simple data-format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices.
Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human readable comment line.
CADMATIC is a leading developer of digital and intelligent 3D-based design, engineering and information management software solutions for the marine and plant industries. CADMATIC solutions (CADMATIC Marine and CADMATIC Plant) are used for all kinds of ship, offshore and process plant constructions, ranging from luxury yachts to the biggest cruise vessels and offshore platforms in the world, and from food and pharmaceutical projects to the biggest power, chemical, oil & gas and pulp & paper projects.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From OBJ to CADMATIC, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
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
