Convert U3D to 3DS via Java

U3D to 3DS conversion using Java library without any 3D modeling software.

How to Convert U3D to 3DS Using Java

In order to render U3D to 3DS, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for Java

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from

Aspose Maven Repository

and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

Steps to Convert U3D to 3DS via Java

Java programmers can easily convert U3D file to 3DS in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load U3D file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of 3dsSaveOptions
  3. Set 3DS specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call Scene.save method
  5. Pass the output path with 3DS file extension & object of 3dsSaveOptions

System Requirements

Before running the Java conversion code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.

  • Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with Java Runtime Environment for JSP/JSF Application and Desktop Applications.
  • Get latest version of Aspose.3D for Java directly from Maven.
  • Java 3D Scene Manipulation Library

    Aspose.3D is a CAD and Gameware API to load, modify and convert 3D files. API is a standalone and does not require any any 3D modeling or rendering software. One can easily use API for Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, FBX (ASCII, Binary), Collada, glTF, PLY, GLB, DirectX and more formats.

    U3D What is U3D File Format

    U3D (Universal 3D) is a compressed file format and data structure for 3D computer graphics. It contains 3D model information such as triangle meshes, lighting, shading, motion data, lines and points with color and structure. The format was accepted as ECMA-363 standard in August 2005. 3D PDF documents support U3D objects embedding and can be viewed in Adobe Reader (version 7 and onwards). U3D format was developed keeping in view the aim to establish a universal standard for three-dimensional data storage and exchange. However, the format finds its main utilization in encoding for 3D PDF rather than being used as an interchange format. Acrobat 3D converts a supported 3D file type to either U3D or PRC upon conversion into the PDF.

    3DS What is 3DS File Format

    A file with 3DS extension represents 3D Studio (DOS) mesh file format used by Autodesk 3D Studio. Autodesk 3D Studio has been in 3D file format market since 1990s and has now evolved to 3D Studio MAX for working with 3D modeling, animation and rendering. A 3DS file contains data for 3D representation of scenes and images and is one of the popular file formats for 3D data import and export. It considers information like camera locations, Mesh data, lighting information, viewport configurations, smoothing group data, bitmap references and attributes to create vertices and polygons for rendering a scene.
