What is OBJ file?
An .OBJ file contains data taken from a Wavefront 3D model. It has a header, which consists of fixed-size 32-bit integers that represent the number of vertices, faces, and edges in the file. It also contains data for each vertex and face in the form of floating point values representing the location on the XYZ axes and U and V coordinates.

Tools that will help you view OBJ files
Sometimes you need to quickly preview the contents of a file with the OBJ extension. In such a situation, many people decide to find a tool that, according to its creators, can display the contents of the OBJ file and many other types of files (All in One Viewer).
Of course, there are such tools. However, it should be remembered that they may display the data contained in the OBJ file differently than the application dedicated to handling the OBJ file extension. When you cannot afford to have the data of the OBJ file displayed different from the original, you should use the applications developed to work with the OBJ file.
Below you will find a list of software programs that will help you with this. These software programs will help you view the content of the OBJ file, minimizing possible errors that may arise with other tools.
