LWO to 3DS Conversion

Here’s a list of valuable resources, complete with step-by-step guides and expert advice for converting LWO files to 3DS format using our converters. Examine them now to facilitate your LWO files conversion later.


LWO LightWave 3D File

The native file format for the LightWave 3D modeling, animation, and rendering computer software. LightWave 3D is a powerful and comprehensive tool that allows you to create stunning 3D graphics and animations for various purposes, such as games, films, or visual effects. Here are some of the key features and benefits of LWO:

  • High-Quality and Realistic 3D Models: LWO is a professional and versatile format for 3D modeling and animation, as it can capture the details and complexity of 3D models and scenes. LWO can store various types of 3D meshes, such as polygons, subdivision surfaces, or metaballs. LWO can also store various types of material information, such as texture images, color, reflectivity, transparency, and more. These properties can enhance the appearance and realism of the 3D models and animations.
  • LWO File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow for the seamless import of 3D mesh geometry, along with assigned material information, from LWO files. This enables you to convert any LWO object model into your preferred file format for further editing in your default 3D software. You can choose from various formats, such as PLY, STL, OBJ, SKP, CityJSON, and others.

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.
