What is OBJ file?
OBJ or .obj file format is the acronym of .wavefrontOBJect. Wavefront technologies first invented the OBJ File format for storage and backward/ forward transmission of non-animated 3D Data.
OBJ Files can store the geometrical features of the surfaces via both tessellations and free form curves. A unique feature of OBJ files is their ability to store color and texture data through .mtl file types. Together, OBJ and MTL files can help study and transmit geometrical, color, and texture data. OBJ files have thus become extremely popular in the last few years to manufacture parts using a variety of manufacturing processes, including 3D Printing
