Free Online DAE Converter

This is our free-to-use DAE file conversion tool that can be used to convert your DAE file into any number of other 3D model formats. Our DAE converter will extract the 3D model geometry contained within your file and accurately convert it to the desired format without any loss of detail. Our DAE converter also has a batch processing mode whereby you may upload up to a maximum of 20 files to be converted in one go.

Drag and drop your files here to upload or click the button above.
A maximum of 20 files can be converted at once.

Please note: Your DAE file file, when uploaded to our server, will be deleted 15 minutes after upload. Please download your converted DAE file file before this time.
Our DAE conversion tool supports converting to the following file types:

Our DAE converter will extract the vertices, faces, and other geometric data that forms the structure of your 3D model and convert it to the requested format. If the selected format supports external texture files, these can be uploaded along with your DAE model file, and these will be processed accordingly.

DAE file information

Full NameCOLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity
Type3D Model
Mime Typetext/xml

The Khronos Group created the DAE file, a 3D model file format. The format is an XML text-based format, storing the 3D model information in a standardized XML structure, ensuring it is easy to add additional features without introducing compatibility issues.

Many 3D editing applications support the importing and exporting of DAE files, including the popular 3D editor Blender.

Mesh Geometry

DAE files support mesh geometry along with various types of surface definitions, from simple triangles to full polygon meshes. It has support for face and vertex normals and texture coordinates too. Mesh elements defined within the XML structure can be shared between multiple 3D objects within the final rendered scene.

DAE Converter Capabilities

As materials containing texture and color information are both supported by the DAE format, our tool will do its best to include these materials, including any texture files, in the converted file.
