PLY

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.

Parasolid

Parasolid file format is native for Parasolid geometrical kernel. Today it is widely used in a range of applications, including SolidWorks, SolidEdge, NX, Microstation, Ansys, Abaqus and others. Parasolid has two primary file extensions: .x_t, which is text based, and .x_b – binary-based format. Parasolid is also used to provide precise geometrical definitions of parts in JT files (as XT B-Rep data segments). CAD Exchanger can read files compliant with the entire range of Parasolid file format (schema) starting from v0.15 and up to version 32 (as of time of writing this page). Likewise, CAD Exchanger writes file compliant with all Parasolid schemas.

Everything you need to know about CAD file formats

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.
