Using 3DS Files

3D Studio is an off-the-shelf 3D animation program. Promis.e allows you to do the following with 3DS files:

  • Import them in a dgn file
  • Attach them as references
  • Place them as cells
  • Open them in read-only mode
  • Open and save them as DGN files

There are several options available when you open a 3DS file.

When working with 3DS files:

  • 3DS file units are defined in the 3DS Open File Settings dialog.
  • No new levels are created.
  • Materials are stored in the DGN file.
  • Texture files remain in their original location. They are referred to by an absolute or relative path.
