Default Export plugins for Maya (3DS in particular)

Does anyone know what export plugins there are. I mainly want to be able to export to 3DS format, and ideally a free one if there is one.
Otherwise any info on this would be helpful. Thanks..

Well, in your plugin manager, there are a few highly-supported export plugins that are NOT enabled by default.

Check them out

Windows/settings and preferences/plugin manager

Check ON BOTH checkboxes for the, obj, and vrml plugins at least

Right now, there is no free .3ds exporter that I know of.

However, Max will understand the .obj format

Thanks for that! The obj. format should do the trick. I've got other 3D software that recognises obj files and can export to 3DS that way.
Its a little long winded but still the same result.
