What is an FBX file?

An FBX file is a 3D model saved in the Autodesk Filmbox format. It contains a model that can be used and shared across a variety of digital modeling and content creation programs, including the Autodesk suite of applications. FBX files are often used in game development and animation.

While the FBX format is proprietary, many non-Autodesk modeling and animation applications can open FBX files. This allows creators to share 3D models with each other using the FBX format, which is efficient because it stores models as binary data. .OBJ, .DXF, .3DS, and .DAE (COLLADA) files can all be converted to FBX files, using Autodesk FBX Converter (available for Windows and Mac, but unsupported as of 2013) or Autodesk Viewer (Web).

How to open an FBX file

You can open and view the 3D model saved within an FBX file using Autodesk FBX Review (Windows, Mac), a free FBX file viewer. You can also open FBX files using Autodesk Viewer (Web).
