FBX file extension - Autodesk Kaydara 3D data exchange format

What is fbx file? How to open fbx files?

File type specification:

3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type icon 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type

File extension fbx is mainly related to Autodesk Kaydara and used for its default file type.

Kaydara FBX is a widely-used standard for the universal exchange and use of 3D content. FBX support is available for all popular 3D authoring tools, like 3ds Max, Autodesk Gameware, etc.

FBX is not a committee standardized file format such as COLLADA, X3D or VRML2, and hence has trouble with compatibility from one version to another, or even within files created within the same major release version.

The fbx file stores 3D data stored in Kaydara FBX file format.
