So no one on this whole site knows if you can load a 3ds model of say a orc into opengl instead of having to use tilemaps all the time?

...?

Naturally you can load a 3d model into Opengl, though indirectly. 3d model formats contain data, which can be extracted from the file and used in OpenGL to render the model.

Where would you get the idea that Opengl can only be used for tilemaps?
