View Full Version : .3ds and .obj file
How do I import a 3ds file into opengl ?
I know I have to use a 3ds loader,but I have no
idea about how to do it.
Is .obj file aslo a kind of 3D graphic file?
Could I just use .obj file in opengl with some opengl function?
Anyway,I just wanna know how to construct a 3D
object in opengl.(or download it form net) I know I could use polygons to construct,but I don't think it's an easy way.
Thanks for any help and suggestion!!

I use a 3DS loader that I found on the net. Basically the loader opens the .3ds file, reads the contents, and stores it in memory. Then I call the drawing function included in the loader to render to the screen.
The render function just uses normal gl functions, like glColor3f() and glVertex3f().
I don't think you'll find anything related to loading models included in OpenGL itself.

Why you not use Export file form ASE or VRML to controller model.
When I use the 3ds file loader (downloaded from
to import some 3ds file,it shows the following
Failed to open DIB file CARPET2.TGA.
What does that mean? Can anyone help? Thanks!!

hm, it can't load a .tga file, not a .3ds file, are you sure the file you want to load is in 3ds format ?
TGA's format usually used with textures, maybe a problem to load the texture of your 3D object
