This is a great professional version 3DS data file viewer. 3DS is one of the file formats used by the Autodesk 3ds Max modeling, animation and rendering software. It was the native file format of the Autodesk 3D Studio too. It is a de facto industry standard for transferring models between 3D programs. The file format is open and has been adopted by many other 3D graphics application vendors. It is one of the most popular 3D file formats for 3D graphics and animation. Many 3D graphics softwares can output 3D model in 3DS format.
The app provides many 3D features including rotating, panning, zooming in/out, changing rendering color, choosing surface or wireframe rendering mode, etc. It supports UV texture mapping and transparency. It also provides you information about your files, for instance, the file size, the height, width and depth of your model, total surface area, total volume, etc.
The app supports loading multiple models at the same time so that you can view them together. The files don't need to be in same data format. It is extremely helpful when you want to compare your data sets to make sure everything works correctly. The app provides unzip function. It can automatically unzip files (in .zip format) and load 3D data in it. It is especially helpful for formats like 3ds which have separate texture image file outside of 3D model. You can just zip 3D model together with texture images and use the app to load the zip file directly.
The app also provides you strong 3D data exporting capability. You can export 3D model in STL, DAE, DXF, OBJ, VRML, PLY, OFF and ATD formats.
The app is very powerful and super easy to use. It is very fast and capable of loading huge models as big as 200MB. It is a great tool for viewing, reviewing and collaborating on 3D assets.
The app is part of ATView3D 3D visualization tool family developed by Afanche Technologies. ATView3D 3D visualization apps are widely used by professionals all over the world.
