Convert 3ds Max (3D Studio MAX) graphics to Industry Foundation Classes 3D file format.

We have found one software suitable in our database for this conversion.

IFC format is not supported in 3ds Max by default and most plugins that add IFC support usually cover import of the data, but not export, which makes direct 3ds to ifc conversion problematic at best, impossible at worst.

The usual workaround is to use exchange formats to overcome this limitation, but not every type of data from 3DS format might be translated perfectly to IFC format.

A viable alternative is to use one of the dedicated 3D model conversion solutions, for example the CAD Exchanger.

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.
