4 Best Free FBX Editor Software For Windows

Here is a list of Best Free FBX Editor Software For Windows. Using these free software, you can edit FBX (Filmbox) file which is a 3D file developed by Autodesk. It basically contains 3D models that you can modify in these software. You can simply import FBX file in an FBX editor, view and modify the model, and then export it to its original format or some other supported format.

A lot of 3D modeling tools are present in listed editors including add objects (circle, cube, cone, cylinder, curves, etc.), extrude, combine objects, hatching, duplicate objects, etc. In all these, you also get transforming tools with which you can edit objects such as rotate, scale, move, shear, bend, translate, etc. In some, there are also tools like sculpting, material editor, texture editor, dimensioning, etc. All in all, these are nice free software with all essential tools to edit FBX files.

These FBX editing software let you edit other 3D model files too, such as OBJ, STL, PLY, COLLADA, etc. Plus, you can also choose to convert edited FBX files to any of the supported formats. As all these are 3D modeling software, you can create new 3D models from scratch in them. These are good as 3D file viewer too as you can find zoom, pan, perspective view, different render styles, and more viewing tools in them. In general, these are quite featured software that can be used for editing FBX files.
