VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to convert a 3D file (.stl, .obj, .fbx, .dae to .glb or .gltf) on AR Code Studio ?

Tutorials | 02/03/2023 |

AR Code Studio is a powerful online 3D editing platform that enables users to create, convert, and export 3D files in various formats. As a core component of the AR Code project, this cutting-edge software streamlines the process of generating Augmented Reality QR Codes through an intuitive cloud-based service.

To get started with AR Code, you'll need a compatible 3D file format such as .glb, .usdz, .ply, .stl, .fbx, .obj, .x3d, .gltf, or a .zip file containing the 3D file and texture paths. Once uploaded to AR Code, your 3D file will be automatically converted to the .usdz format on our server. For more details on 3D file upload requirements, visit our blog post: Uploading 3D Models on AR Code: File Size and Format Guidelines.

Determining Your 3D File Extension

Before converting a 3D file, verify its file extension. AR Code Studio supports the following import formats: .glb, .gltf, .usdz, .ply, .stl, .obj, .fbx, and .dae.

Working with Animated 3D Models

Please note that AR Code Studio does not support animated 3D models. For animated models, we recommend using Blender or Autodesk Maya 3D software for conversion purposes.

3D File Size Limitations

AR Code Studio supports 3D files up to 15MB in size. Uploading files larger than this limit may result in performance issues. To reduce the size of your 3D file, follow our tutorial: Video Tutorial: How to Compress and Reduce the Size of a 3D Model in Blender (GLB, GLTF, DAE, FBX, OBJ, etc.).
