View Full Version : 3ds to Ascii
Does anybody know if there is a converter available or can be created to convert a 3DS Max file in to an ascii file in a particular format.
A rectangular face with the following vertice format starting from the top left going counterclockwise.
Thanks for any help or info.

too late! there already is a 3DS text format. look up on ASC files. check wotsit (http://www.wotsit.org)
Appreciate your help!
But which if any of the files on that site will create the out in the format I described above.
Again, any help or suggestions appreciated.

All faces in 3Dmax are made out of Triangles !!!! why would you want 4-vert faces anyway ?
That is the problem - need rectangles and only where it can't be avoided, triangles.
To apply a bitmap to a triangle is not a good option, although doable - but the result is less than pleasing, since it will get distorted.
