Importing & Exporting Files
Sometimes you may want to utilize files that either came from other 2D or 3D software, or you may want to use the things you have made in Blender and edit them in other software. Luckily, Blender offers a wide range of file formats (e.g. OBJ, FBX, 3DS, PLY, STL, etc.) that can be used to import and export.
Popular formats are enabled by default, other formats are also supported and distributed with Blender, these can be enabled in the Preferences through the use of Add-ons.
More information on the add-ons to import/export these file types can be found in the add-ons section.
