I''m doing a simulation program and I need to read and view 3ds files with openGL. Does anybody know a way to do that? Thanks for the help, Dani

yes, get the file format off the net and write a .3ds importer.

Thanks, but I have no idea of how to make an importer for this kind of files...
and I''ve forgot to say, I''m coding under Linux!

i know you don''t, that''s why you''ll need to get the file format specs. there''s no other way around it, no one''s going to do it for you.

Do a search on altavista for a program called view3ds (recently moved websites so you''ll have to do a bit of digging) its a program written for opengl that loads and displays 3d studio models and comes complete with source code.

If you have trouble finding it , say and i''ll email it to you.

Hehe. There is another way.
Goto http://support.ktx.com/upload/3DSFTK.ZIP
There you can download a sdk which was made for operating on 3ds files.

Hope that helps.

you might also try the gnopengl3ds at this site, its based on the view3ds program mentioned earlier, and works on linux.
