X to 3DS Conversion

This list provides valuable resources, filled with step-by-step guides and expert advice for converting X files to 3DS format using our converters. Review them now to ease your X files conversion later.


X Direct3D File

The original interchange format for DirectX technology, developed by Microsoft in 1995 alongside the release of Windows 95. DirectX is a collection of APIs that enable high-performance graphics and multimedia applications. The X file format can store mesh geometry along with material information, such as texture images. Here are some of the key features and benefits of X:

  • Compatibility with DirectX: X is fully compatible with DirectX technology, which means you can use X files to create and render 3D models and scenes with DirectX APIs. You can also use X files to exchange data between different DirectX applications, such as games, simulations, or animations.
  • X File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application software allow you to effortlessly convert X files into your native 3D modeling environment. You can choose from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, 3DM, SKP, STEP, and others.
  • Reverse Conversion: Additionally, our X file converters support reverse conversion, enabling you to convert your native files into the X file format. This allows you to use your 3D models in DirectX applications, or to share them with other users who use DirectX technology.

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.
