Although not that common, some 3D objects can be saved in KMZ format ( Compressed Keyhole Markup Language) which may not be well supported in some 3D modeling programs. Users often try to convert them to other 3D formats, for example to the generic 3D object format (.obj). This can be done using programs like Blender or similar.

We have found 5 software records in our database eligible for .kmz to .obj file format conversion.
Microsoft Windows software - convert kmz to obj on Windows
AccuTrans 3D provides accurate translation of 3D geometry between the file formats used by many popular modeling programs. Positional and rotational information for the 3D meshes is maintained.
Convert from kmz file
to obj file
The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned kmz to obj. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
Blender is a free and open-source 3D computer graphics software product used for creating animated films, visual effects, interactive 3D applications or video games. Blender's features include 3D modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging and skinning, fluid and smoke simulation, particle simulation, animating, rendering, video editing and compositing.
It is available in versions for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD.
Apple macOS / Mac OS X software - convert kmz to obj on OS X
Blender for Mac is popular free 3D modeling application. It can be used for modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, water and smoke simulations, skinning, animating, rendering, particle and other simulations, non-linear editing, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications, including video games, animated film, or visual effects.
SketchUp is 3D modeling application also available for Mac. SketchUp is easy and intuitive, allowing anyone to model in 3D quickly and accurately. Using 3D models, designers can make more informed decisions, communicate project details, and share ideas with colleagues and customers to reach a common goal.
Linux/Unix software - convert kmz to obj on Linux
Blender for Linux is free easy-to-use 3D modeling utility. It is used for 3D modeling, texturing, water and smoke simulations, animating, rendering, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications.
