3ds to dxf conversion is possible, but it will only convert the mesh data from the 3d model to DXF format. You can do that in 3ds Max itself using the Application Menu ► Export ► Select File To Export dialog ► Save As Type ► AutoCAD (*.DXF). Plenty of other 3rd party software are also capable of this conversion.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned 3ds to dxf. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
