Convert AutoCAD drawing to 3ds Max (3D Studio MAX) graphics.

We have found 10 software records in our database eligible for .dwg to .3ds file format conversion.

Your best option for handling DWG/3DS formats is to use software from Autodesk, namely 3ds Max previously also known as 3D Studio Max.

Unfortunately, direct export to 3DS format was removed in AutoCAD 2007, so this software is no longer an option for dwg to 3ds conversion. Autodesk suggests that users export their data to FBX format, which can then be used in all sorts of 3D modeling / CAD tools.

Also, some 3rd party solutions may support both .dwg and .3ds files and allow users to convert dwg to 3ds, but only certain versions of DWG format may be supported.

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 dwg to 3ds. 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.
