Default 3DS Import Plugin

Er... I cannot seem to find this plugin... Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I have looked on AW site and tired the one Kevin originally made available in April last year - doesn't seem to work with Maya 4.5

if your pc based i wouldent use the 3ds import plug...

FBX format if alot better (animation/ik/textures), + it also exports you mesh as quads and not tris

Hey on a note with the 3ds import..I have created a model within 3dsmax. Exported as a *.3ds. Imported it in Maya. And It's no where to be found. If I do SHIFT +A it comes in view, but most of it is like gone? But it comes in view when I rotate it..Why can't I see it all clear and not have pieces dissapear?

Angry Problem with Importing

I've created a model in 3dsmax 4.0, I have exported it *3ds
I have Maya 5.0 and the bonus tools. So I have the new 3ds importer. The problem is, I can inport the model, and in the view panel. I see nothing. Shift + A brings it somewhat to view in all 4 viewports. When I rotate the model, I can start to see the model. Parts are invisible untill I rotate it. How can I see my model in its full form in the view ports? It seems like a DOF problem or sumthin like that.. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
