Conversion of obj files to ply file format

Considering that both .obj and .ply files contain 3D models, albeit in a little different format, it might actually be very well possible that one can be converted to another and vice versa using some of the dedicated 3D modeling programs or even dedicated conversion programs. You can even find online converters capable of obj to ply conversion on internet.
