Convert Stereolithography CAD file to 3ds Max (3D Studio MAX) graphics.

We have found 14 software records in our database eligible for .stl to .3ds file format conversion.

Most CAD/3D programs with 3D printing support should be able to import Stereolithography CAD files (.stl) and process the data so they can be saved in one of the common 3D formats. For some proprietary formats, such as .3ds from 3ds Max, it may be a little more tricky, but still doable.

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 stl 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.
