 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?

 It's quite easy. Here is a 3D structure: graphics = Graphics3D[{ Cuboid[], Cone[{{.5, .5, 1}, {.5, .5, 1.5}}, .5], Sphere[{.5, .5, 1.75}, .25] }, Boxed -> False] 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): SystemOpen[%] Chris
