I know that they posted news about a .3ds reader. Just browse through their news history.

3D Exploration creates a .c file with the coord''s of the model, I personally don''t like this. I prefer to have a loader that loads the .3ds files at runtime rather than have them included in the exe.

You could convert the .3ds files to .asc (within 3dsmax or with 3d exploration) or .x (directx files) which are just asci files and very easy to read. Even I with my very limited programming skills was able to write a ''reader'' for both .asc and .x.
I think the .x file format is better as you can save the normals in the file so you don''t have to calculate them. In the asc files you only get the vertices and faces.

I''ve got an early alpha version of my 3ds reader on my site. It imports the hole data for a scene (lights, materials, mesh objects, keyframes etc.)

Also, there is a 3DS file toolkit available in the developer section of the Kinetix message board, under the "SDK downloads" (or something similar) section. It would be nice if you could just download the whole SDK though...
