OBJ is a file format used in 3D graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) to represent 3D models. It was created by Wavefront Technologies and is widely used in many 3D graphics applications. Unlike the STL format, which stores only triangular mesh data, OBJ files can contain information about a 3D model’s geometry, texture coordinates, normals, and material definitions, making its appearance much more realistic compared to STL files.
OBJ files are used in a variety of applications, including:
