3DS 3D Studio File

A widely recognized format used for storing polygonal mesh models. It has gained popularity due to its extensive feature set and compatibility with various software, such as:

  • Extensive Support: The 3DS format supports a variety of features including model names, reusable geometry component instances, materials with transparent colors, and texture images.
  • Compatibility: You can import and export 3DS models to and from many software applications, such as DIALux, which is used for lighting design.
  • Legacy Constraints: Due to its legacy constraints, 3DS model names are limited to 8 characters. Additionally, a single 3DS mesh object can only contain up to 32,767 triangles.

3DS File Converters: To overcome legacy limitations and convert any mesh into 3DS format, you can use our Autoconverter and Automesher Application. They will automatically split your models into smaller shells to accommodate the triangles limit, and convert them to the 3DS format.


DWG BricsCAD Drawing

Bricsys's BricsCAD is a significant player in the Computer Aided Design (CAD) software landscape. It offers a compelling alternative to other CAD software, with its ability to keep pace with the latest DWG file format. It has the following features:

  • DWG Compatibility: The ability to read and write the latest DWG file format, which is the native format of AutoCAD and supported by many other CAD applications. DWG files can store 2D and 3D geometry data, as well as project metadata, such as layers, blocks, dimensions, etc.
  • BricsCAD Plug-ins: Automesher Application and Automapki Application plug-ins for BricsCAD allow you to import and export 3D and GIS data from various external file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, SHP, KML, etc. This enhances the interoperability of BricsCAD with other design tools and platforms.
  • ObjectBRX Technology: The customization technology for BricsCAD provided by Bricsys, which we use to develop our BricsCAD plug-ins. This ensures optimal integration with the BricsCAD environment and efficient translation of your external file formats, making BricsCAD an even more powerful tool for design professionals.
