DE · Glossary · OBJ Glossary Term


OBJ is a type of geometry definition file format, with the extension, .OBJ. It’s typically created by computer-aided design software as a final result of the 3D modeling procedure. Wavefront Technologies was the pioneering developer of this common, open file format, when it first created .OBJ for its animation software. Many graphics software makers have embraced .OBJ as an industry standard file format. An array of 3D image editing software systems can export and open this 3d image file type. The .OBJ file format has built into it a 3D object that contains 3D coordinates, polygonal faces and texture maps, for examples.
