Convert 3DS file

3DS 3DS File

3DS (3D Studio) file extension is a famous file format for storing polygonal mesh models with the additional support for the model names, materials with transparent colors and texture images. For the legacy reasons the maximum length of 3DS model name is 8 characters, and the maximum number of triangles in a single 3DS mesh object is 32.767, therefore during 3DS export process any bigger mesh will be divided into smaller shells. Using our Autoconverter or Autoshaper 3DS file converters you can convert any 3D model into 3DS file format and import it into a common DIALux lighting project.


STP STEP File

STEP (STandardized Exchange of Product) is a very popular file format for the data 3D exchange between different computer systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the STEP geometry data are stored in a text form you can expect bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using the Autoconverter software. However if your geometry defines manifold solid it will try to create optimized faceted STEP brep representation which should reduce STEP file size by one third. The STEP file format supports color per assembly however without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the final STEP file.
