Learn how to convert 3DS to KOMPAS-3D with CAD Exchanger
3DS is one of the file formats used by the Autodesk 3D modeling, animation and rendering software. It once was native for the old Autodesk 3D Studio DOS and eventually has grown to become a de facto industry standard for transferring models between 3D programs, or for storing models for 3D resource catalogs.
3DS is aimed at providing an import/export format, retaining only essential geometry, texture and lighting data.
KOMPAS-3D is a flexible 3D modeling system that allows creating models by several methods, including the following ones:
Bottom-up modeling using finished components. Top-down modeling by designing components to match specific designs. Modeling based on layout drawings, such as kinematic diagrams. Or any combination of these modeling methods. These approaches allow creating editable associative models easily.
The KOMPAS-3D system has powerful functions for managing projects of thousands of sub-assemblies, parts, and standard library products. It supports all the capabilities of 3D solids and surface modeling that have become the standard among medium-level CAD/CAM programs.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From 3DS to KOMPAS-3D, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
