Exporting 3ds model from mathematica

Hi, I'm an architect I don't know much about mathematica but I'm trying to learn how to use it. The geometry is quite interesting for me to use in architectural forms so I need to export some demonstrations into 3ds models. Is there anybody who can help me about it?

When you export the model to 3ds max, you can move them individually by poly modelling (converting the model to editable poly), if I got the question right. Besides you can check this discussion ;

I am interested in importing models from 3ds max -

Import["C:\MyWorks\3dsMax\project30314one\export/wolfram.3ds.\ gz", ImageSize -> Medium]

Have you managed to interact with objects - and get them to move individually.


It's quite easy. Here is a 3D structure:

graphics = Graphics3D[{
   Cone[{{.5, .5, 1}, {.5, .5, 1.5}}, .5],
   Sphere[{.5, .5, 1.75}, .25]
   }, Boxed -> False]

3D structure

This exports the structure in 3DS format:

Export["geometry.3ds", graphics]

You can also specify the format explicitly if it isn't clear from the file name:

Export["geometry.3ds", graphics, "3DS"]

This will then open the file with the default application on your system for 3DS files (% denotes the last output):
