Pixyz Studio can import a wide range of CAD file formats from industry-leading solutions and standards (CATIA, NX, SolidWorks, Creo, STEP, IGES...), and tessellated/mesh file formats (FBX, OBJ, JT, USD, glTF…).

Additionally, Pixyz Studio can also export tessellated/mesh file formats (FBX, glTF, USD…).


The following 3D file formats are supported:

IMPORTANT                The "Alternative Importer" parameter gives the possibility to import some formats using a different importer, if the default one does not give satisfaction. To manage the parameter, go to Preferences
