OBJ is a file format, defined by Wavefront, containing the description of 3D geometry in a tessellation form (triangles). Originally developed for Advanced Visualizer 3D animation software, this file format is open and has been adopted by other 3D software such as Maya, Blender, MeshLab, 3D Studio Max, etc. for import or export of 3d models.

OBJ files are in ASCII format (a binary version has the MOD extension). Materials can be referenced by importing .mtl (Material Template Library) files.

CAD Interop distributes several softwares to view and translate OBJ files. Find below the list of our solutions compatible with OBJ format:
