At least 3 different file formats may be represented with file with extention "3dm": take a look here (http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=3dm&goButton=Go) Which from that, or maybe another one you bear in mind?

3dm is a file that is used by Rhinoceros program. Rhinoceros is a superb (i think so anyway and I am not an employee of the company by the way) CAD package. If you want to download and evaluation copy go to www.rhino3d.com. (http://www.rhino3d.com.)

Can I use a Rhino 3dm model in a project?

What do you mean by project?. If it is a commercial project then you would need to purchase it because the evaluation copy only allows you to save up to 25 times.

Do you have to use .3dm models?

Wings3D (www.wings3d.com) is an excellent open-source 3D modelling app that exports to multipile types.
I have often used rwx - I don't know what the real specs for the format are but it stores in a plain text file and is pretty easy to figure out.
