Convert OBJ to PLY in C#

Let’s dive into the implementation of a programmatic conversion between two famous 3D file formats. Recently, we published a blog post that showed how to convert PLY to OBJ in a .NET application. However, in this blog post, we will learn how to convert OBJ to PLY in C#. So, we will achieve this functionality by opting for Aspose.3D for .NET. This C# 3D graphics library is a mature .NET API that offers a wide range of conversion and manipulation features. Therefore, do not. miss any section of this guide in order to learn how to develop an OBJ to PLY converter programmatically.
