X3D to 3DS Conversion

Here is a list of valuable resources, complete with step-by-step instructions and expert advice for converting X3D files to 3DS format using our converters. Check them out now to expedite your X3D files conversion later.


X3D Extensible 3D File

An open-source and royalty-free XML based format that was developed by the Web3D Consortium. X3D has many applications and benefits for the 3D graphics industry, especially in relation to web applications. Here are some of the key features and advantages of X3D:

  • VRML Replacement: X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language, and it was a standard format for describing interactive 3D scenes on the web.
  • X3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application seamlessly handle X3D file import and export, ensuring smooth data exchange and compatibility. This enables you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, STEP, and more, to X3D and vice versa.
  • X3DB File Format: For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file. X3DB is a compressed version of X3D, which reduces the file size and improves the loading speed, an important factor for web applications.

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.
