I see a lot of models in a format whose files end with .max. Is there a converter which will covert these to a format which blender reads (for example, 3dx)? I’ve been using Accu-Trans, which is a great little program, but it doesn’t appear to recognize these files.
A converter for max files!!!?? Never heard of it!!
If you have MAX (not expensive anyway ah ah) save your objects,
one at a time in .3ds format or dxf
This way you have some nice converters to ex: Crossroads
I know…sort of sucks…does it not ?
theres a prog called 3DExploration which converts a lot of files including VRML 1 and 2, DXF, and 3ds. unfortunately its not freeware.
Nope, I don’t have Max. But I’ve found a number of models I’d like to convert to Blender which are in max. In fact, it seems like every time I find just the model I’m looking for, it’s usually in max.
In this case, I was looking for a model of a pickup, the sort of thing some guys modify extensively. If I don’t find one pretty soon, I may go out and take the dimensions off my Nissan!
You can’t convert .MAX files unless you have 3dsmax on your computer, it’s in the programming. Find .3ds files or LWO or DXF…etc.
Sorry to break it to you, but I spent a month searching for any converter that would work without having 3dsmax on my machine.
There just isn’t one, so don’t waste your time. :-?
I use this free converter, for .3ds, .lwo, some maya, and lots of others to import to Blender, but not .MAX.
Get Accutrans3d here:- http://www.micromouse.ca/index.html
i’d be willing to try and convert the objects in that file to .3ds, as I just aquired 3ds max(don’t ask me how ). but it would take at least a week, cos my system is ruined and i gotta reinstall
