How do you create mesh files( .x )?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Just starting out. Downloaded Directx9 SDK and noticed that the tutorials use mesh files but don''t seem to mention how they are created. Is there a tool/program to make it relatively easy to do? Thanks! RM

You can create mesh files for DirectX with any 3D software like Maya or 3D Studio Max. But you need an X-File exporter for them, I think one is included in the DirectX SDK. But these tools are for professional use and very expensive. For a cheaper solution (freeware) try Milkshape 3D

3dsconv comes with the sdk. if you want to use an exporter get the addon package for directx. (if you''re using 3dsmax you might wanna get the dx8 package)
