3D mesh file created in the text-based TRI format; stores the mesh using x, y, z coordinate vertices and triangular polygons, which reference the declared vertices; used for constructing surfaces for 3D models.
There are some variations of the TRI file format, but the most basic version contains a one-line header followed by the vertices and triangles, where the header specifies the number of vertices and triangles.
TRI files are often used by scientific visualization or molecular modeling applications.
