procedure for 3ds import

Recommended Posts

hi everyone, 


Trying to figure out procedure callout in python for 3ds import. 

For OBJ for example it is :

vs.importOBJ(filename, True)

for sketchup 

vs.Importsketchup(filename, True)


i have tried 

vs.import3ds(filename, True)

and vs.import3d(filename, True)


I'm trying to create another import node for 3ds import based on DOMC's import sketchup script.

So far it worked for OBJ, but can't seem to be able to get 3ds to work.


Maybe someone can help me please? :)

Ah, alas, can't have everything. 

Im trying to create a consolidated library of information, i do have alot of 3ds and obj files to import. Hoping i would be able to conserve time by mass importing 3ds, but seems i might have to convert to obj or skp before i can do that. Keep you updated 😉


Thank you Marissa!
