I know two diferent methods, write your own 3ds loader (it sucks) or get a program as Polytrans, that will transform 3ds files into OpenGL C code... http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Look on www.flipcode.com, (http://www.flipcode.com,) in the code of the week, this week, there is a code example how to load a 3ds file...

Look for 3ds at www.wotsit.org (http://www.wotsit.org)
The "official" one has some code which you can adapt.

What I am looking for is this "View3ds" program I've seen mentioned before. I need the source code, not some executable.

If that is not available, is there no code available for loading 3ds models into OpenGL that is more complete than the flipcode sample?

Try 3D Explorer, it converts 3ds to opengl c code.

Open your 3DS file in 3DSMax and make a plugin for it... http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif
