Convert AutoCAD drawing to 3ds Max file.

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

In the past it was possible to directly export AutoCAD drawings to 3ds Max formats, but nowadays Autodesk suggests to use FBX format as exchange format between different software. But it might be possible that some 3rd party 3D modeling tools or converters can still perform dwg to 3dsmax conversion directly.

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.

Files with dwg extension are used for the original CAD format originally introduced in Autodesk AutoCAD. The latest version of DWG format is usuaually proprietary and can only be created in AutoCAD. Other CAD programs can usually import it but not create its proprietary form. Because of this, DWGs are often exported to DXF interchange format so that they can be seamlessly used in other CAD programs.


Autodesk 3ds Max 3D modeling, rendering, and animation software actually uses .3ds or .max files and not .3dsmax files.
