Exporting large 3d model

Hello all,

What is the easiest way to export a large model. I basically have a small city model I am looking at purchasing in 3ds format. I want to import the model, then export it with multiple meshes. For example, each building would be a different object. Does this make sense to anyone? Is this possible?


obj format is the most interchangeable format, but it is not very compact, so your file sizes may be big.

So, when you export in object format, are is there one master object file? I did try that last night and cancelled it as it was taking for ever. I did notice 9 obj files created.
