I have some FBX files, (without the program they were made on), and according to the error message when I import them to blender, they are ASCII FBX files. I need to convert them to binary FBX files (or anything else, .obj, .dae) to import them into blender. Any way/tools in which I could do this? I have seen several links to the autodesk tool that converts them however they all just bring me to the autodesk front page. If anybody has a direct download link to that tool or any other method to convert these ASCII FBX files to anything else, please let me know. Thanks!

I am using blender v 2.79 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.6


Wait, no need for downloads

If you have a Windows 10 computer as well you can convert it on that using 3D viewer to export it to .glb that can be opened in Blender.
If you ever get a Windows 10 PC use it to convert .FBX files.
