Description

The 3DS format has been a standard 3D format for many years. It has been the native file format for Autodesk's 3D Studio from the days of Microsoft's MS DOS. The age of the format began to show its limitations many years ago and was replaced by Autodesk when 3D Studio Max was launched.

There are however still many 3D model files circulating in the 3DS format and these can be easily converted using our 3DS conversion tools. Some of the limitations of the 3DS file format include: texture names limited to DOS 8.3 filenames, maximum number of vertices allowed in the 3D mesh is capped at 65536 and no support for directional lighting.

The IDTF file format is a bespoke format that enables interactive 3D content to be embedded within a PDF document. Currently only Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange Editor are able to render PDF documents that contain this 3D content.

IDTF files are a simple text-based format containing 3D geometry defined using vertices and faces in a structured hierarchy. Prior to importing the IDTF file to the PDF it must be converted to a U3D file format using one of the free applications such as IDTFConverter.
