How to Convert MB to OBJ

By Katrina Matterhorn

An OBJ file is a 3-D image file that contains 3-D coordinates and texture maps. It is a graphics software file compatible with several graphics programs such as Meshlab, Newtek Lightwave 3D and Wavefront 3D. The MB file is a graphics file created by the Autodesk Maya program and is compatible with Autodesk applications; it isn't, however, compatible with other graphics programs. If you want to view your MB file in other applications, the Autodesk Maya does have a converter features so you can convert your MB file to an OBJ file.

Step 1

Double-click the "Autodesk Maya" icon to launch the program.

Step 2

Click "Windows," "Settings/Preferences" and "Plugin Manager."

Step 3

Step 4

Double-click the MB file you want to convert. Click "File," "Export Selection" and select "OBJexport" beneath "Files of Type."

Name the file when prompted and click "Export." Your MB file will be converted to an OBJ file.
