Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

Simple file conversion help needed

Hey guys,

Was wondering if someone could help me with something really quick. I created something at my school using Max (which is more aggravating than Maya somehow…) and I forgot to make an .obj of it.

It was created with Max 2010. All I need is an .obj.

Thanks,
-Steven Palmesano

I thought there was a max importer with the maya bonus tools - it might be worth checking it out.

But shame on you for the rookie error

Dango77, thanks, but… where's the file??

tweetytunes, haha true, but I didn't think I'd need to use the 3D file when I got home.

The importer is for .3ds, not .max


Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Jr.Who, I tried to load it in Max and got Missing .dll's for Wave Master, Pro Sound, and Storage and Filter. And Max would not open it. I tried for you.


Challenge me and I will try. Because If I should fail, failure also has a prize (Knowledge).
