TER Terragen Terrain File

A proprietary file format native to Terragen, a software used for creating natural terrain scenery. Terragen is a tool that allows you to generate realistic and detailed landscapes, mountains, valleys, rivers, and more. Here are some of the key features of TER:

  • Terrain Recognition: TER is a specialized and powerful format for natural terrain scenery, as it can capture the complexity and diversity of natural landscapes. TER is particularly useful in the terrain recognition industry, where it can be used to analyze, classify, and model terrain features and characteristics.
  • TER File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application are capable of reading and importing TER terrain data, thanks to the open asset import library. This allows for the seamless conversion of terrains from TER files into various other 3D file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, DAE, STEP, and more.

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.
