Import max models?


#1

I need to open a max model. The file is “file.max”, but there are no import options for files with this extension.
If I rename it to “file.3ds” the command line reports “no meshes in this model”

Apparently the file is a max “scan line” model, whatever that means…?

Thanks

.max file conversion to any rhino file supported

3ds Max saves scenes to a proprietary binary format with the extension .MAX. The specification of the format is not public. The content of the file is heavily dependent on the plug-in data used to build the scene, thus parsing the file outside of 3ds Max makes little sense.

Oh…so boring!
Perhaps it might be useful to pop what you have just said into the help file…?

Thanks Dale
