Thanks Steve will give it a whirl.

I use 3ds Max, Solidworks and Inventor , daily at work.
There are plenty import/export plugins for 3dsmax. I sure there is a .ms3d
plugin.

If i have my uv textured & unrapped model in a ms3d format can I avoid using milkshape all together ?

Edit:
Here is a link to a 3dsmax plugin

Thanks. I will try on the web. Because I find that "MilkShape" is too limited. For example I miss the commands AND, NOT, OR, XOR between two objects. Bye ....

could you by any chance load a dual boot with XP? it is certain to work.
XSI is so powerfull..if you have another pc even older in the home it will also work on it

I have it on a fairly poor laptop

hallo,

an other (very) good 3D tool is Blender 2.5 - my absolute favorite since last year, because the complete new polished/featured interface of Blender 2.5x was released!
it is free open source program with a huge amount of features and available add-ons.

take a look to http://www.blender.org
or if you need more add-ons already included, visit http://www.graphicall.org

for blender there are also many many turotials available...
here some links to the most populare tutorial sites i remember:
http://www.blendernerd.com
http://www.blenderguru.com
http://www.blendercookie.com
http://www.blendswap.com
http://blendtuts.com
http://www.katsbits.com
... and and and ...

by default enabled add-ons for import:
COLLADA (.dae)
Stanford (.ply)
Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg)
Stl (.stl)
3D Studio (.3ds)
Wavefront (.obj)
X3D Extensible 3D (.x3d / .wrl)

by default enabled add-ons for export:
COLLADA (.dae)
Stanford (.ply)
Stl (.stl)
3D Studio (.3ds)
Autodesk FBX (.fbx)
Wavefront (.obj)
X3D Extensible 3D (.x3d)

but currently i did not found a import / export add-on script for MilkSape3D - but i am sure if there are many requests for, it will be available also...

PS.: BTW... Blender has also its own game engine included - and uses the open source physic engine Bullet...

PPS.: Blender is available for multiple platforms - Windows 32bit, Windows 64bit, Linux, MAC, ...). You can download and install it as installer version or (what i prefer) as zip file and unzip it where ever you wand - so you will be able to easy use different versions / tastes if it without conflicts.

maybe i should put this post as an own separate topic?!
(if you find this post very useful and as candidat as a separate topic, please put/move this post as topic)

Hi everybodies.!

here we are, im launching myself in the creation of an original table. I dont know how much time it will take, may be a year, but just hope to see this table alive one day.! I still don't realise how long it can take hehe!

I downloaded the pdf guide that Steve share here, and waouw my God, its a Bible.!! Hope ill still be alive after reading all of this!
I downloaded also XSI, and just want to say that for me it works perfectly on my Windows 7.
So Franzleo, i think there is still a chance for you to make it works on your computer.

By the way, im looking for a free application which can create a 3D object from 2D pictures.
For sure its possible to do it but it cost the skin of my A..
May be XSI can do it but i didnt study it enough right now..and I begin from Zero in 3D.

Have a nice day to you all!

xsi won't do that and yest..the soft that take a picture and manipulate it in order to make a 3d model exist...but dam expensive!..

don't be discourage...try slow...simple shape..make some simple drop target or custom ornament, in no time creativity will take over.

Good luck !


Steve

Check out Photomodeler Lite. It's a free version of the professional Photomodeler application. I think that might do what you are looking for. Just do a Yahoo or Google search for it.

I use Blender 2.5 and love it. When you say 3D object from 2D pictures what do u mean exactly? Take a 2D photo and pretty much put it on a plane then extrude it out.

Update: I think I know what u mean now after going here http://www.photomodeler.com
