3D Modeling File Types

Table 1.2 lists the file types and their extensions used by the programs shown in Table 1.1. Some of these files represent an entire 3D scene in a program, some are proprietary to the particular software, and others are universal between programs. This is a handy list because you might need to import or export files among several programs.

3ds Max is capable of importing from and exporting to several of these file formats; other formats require free plug-ins available on the Internet. (See Appendix B, "Related Web Sites and Links," to find links to these plug-ins.)
