Learn how to convert PLY to 3DM with CAD Exchanger
PLY is a computer file format known as the Polygon File Format or the Stanford Triangle Format. It was designed to store three-dimensional data from 3D scanners. The data storage format supports a relatively simple description of a single object as a list of nominally flat polygons.
A 3DM file is a native file format for 3D models in Rhinoceros CAD application software. It contains surface, point and curve information.
3DM files can be exported in both NURBS (non-uniform rational B-spline) and polygon mesh representations, making it possible for other CAD / CAM / CAE / graphic design software to edit those models.
In addition to Rhino CAD software, 3DM files can be opened with Autodesk Fusion 360.
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
