Information about OBJ and PLY file formats

🔸 File format OBJ PLY
🔸 Full name OBJ geometry format Polygon File Format
🔸 File extension .obj .ply
🔸 MIME type text/plain text/plain
🔸 Developed by Wavefront Technologies Greg Turk, Stanford University
🔸 Type of format
🔸 Description OBJ (or .obj) is a geometry definition file format first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package. The file format is open and has been adopted by other 3D graphics application vendors. PLY is a computer file format known as the Polygon File Format or the Stanford Triangle Format. It was principally 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. Various properties can be stored, including color and transparency, surface normals, texture coordinates, and data confidence values. In addition, the format permits one to have different properties for the front and back of a polygon. There are two versions of the file format, one in ASCII, the other in binary.
🔸 Technical details The OBJ file format is a simple data format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices. Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human-readable comment line. Files are organized as a header that specifies the mesh elements and their types, followed by the list of elements itself. The elements are usually vertices and faces but may include other entities such as edges, samples of range maps, and triangle strips. The header of both ASCII and binary files is ASCII text. Only the numerical data that follows the header is different between the two versions. The header always starts with a "magic number", a line containing "ply", which identifies the file as a PLY file.
