ASE Autodesk Scene Export File

A file format that was developed by Autodesk for their 3D Studio software. It is an ASCII format that can store the information of a 3D scene, such as the meshes, materials, and other properties. Here are some of the key features and benefits of ASE:

  • ASE File Import: Autoconverter and Automesher Application can read and import ASE files and convert them to other 3D formats, such as OFF, PLY, 3DM, SKP, and others. We use the open asset import library, which is a cross-platform library that supports many 3D file formats. By using this library, we can preserve the original features of the ASE file, such as the textures, colors, and UV coordinates.
  • ASE File Export: Currently, our software does not support saving and exporting to the ASE file format. This is a limitation of the open asset import library, which does not provide a way to write ASE files. If you need this feature and want to export your model to an ASE file, please contact our support team and let us know. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions.

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 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.
