My company has lots of guys that can model 3D images way better than me, but how can I get them from their programs to mine?

OpenGL does not have any built in object loading routines, they have to be loaded with some prewriten library or routine writen by someone.

There are lots of code out there for loading OBJ, 3DS, etc.

First find out what object format your guy's can out put, then do a search on that format.

Also if you can not find a loader for there format, there are programs out there that will convert from one format to another.
