Exporting max files into obj or 3ds format
show user profile  dcny30
Hello all,

I'm hoping I can get some assistance. I was given several max files but I can't open them as they were done with a more recent version than I have.

I have 3ds max 9 which is a relic but downloading the trial version of the latest isn't an option since my PC isn't good enough.

My question is that is there a website that I can send the max files to be exported into obj or 3ds formats that I can use ? I don't need the lights, materials or camera - just the objects.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

That'd be great, there are a few files that are large. What's the best way to do that?

Again, I did a search in the forums to find out what's the preferred way but couldn't find any.

Bear in mind that large meshes won't export to .3DS.

I'm not going to edit them at all, they'll be used as a background for the actual work that I'll do. I may change the material but i'm hoping to maintain the shape.

the 3dmodeloculus is the most important one. The other two would be nice to have but not imperative.

Good morning,

Thank you so much for the exports. It was weird, first time I extracted, I got a warning that the files were corrupt but I restarted my PC and I was able to obtain all the files. You have no idea what a time saver that was for me.
