Compiled Mesh Object (CMO) is a simple runtime format that is supported by the Visual Studio content pipeline (VS 2012, VS 2013). This support provides the ability for Visual Studio to build a CMO from an Autodesk FBX, Collada DAE, or Wavefront OBJ file.

CMO is supported as a runtime format for DirectXTK's Model class.
