Convert 3DS to OBJ via Python

Render 3DS as OBJ without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert 3DS to OBJ Using Python

In order to convert 3DS to OBJ, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for Python via .NET

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use document manipulation and conversion API for Python. Open

NuGet

package manager, search for Aspose.3D and install. You may also use the following command from the Package Manager Console.

Command line


pip install aspose-3d

Steps to Convert 3DS to OBJ via Python

Python programmers can easily load & convert 3DS files to OBJ in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load 3DS file via the from_file of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of ObjSaveOptions
  3. Set OBJ specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call the Scene.save method
  5. Pass the output path with OBJ file extension & object of ObjSaveOptions
  6. Check resultant OBJ file at specified path

System Requirements

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

  • Microsoft Windows or Linux based OS.
  • Python 3.5 or later.
  • Aspose.3D for Python referenced in your project.
  • A 3D File Processing Library to manipulate 3D files without any modeling and rendering software. The 3D API supports Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, FBX (ASCII, Binary), STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, Collada, glTF, GLB, PLY, DirectX, Google Draco file formats and more. Developers can create, read, convert, modify and control the substance of 3D document formats easily.

    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.

    obj What is obj File Format

    OBJ files are used by Wavefront's Advanced Visualizer application to define and store the geometric objects. Backward and forward transmission of geometric data is made possible through OBJ files. Both polygonal geometry like points, lines, texture vertices, faces and free-form geometry (curves and surfaces) are supported by OBJ format. This format does not support animation or information related to light and position of scenes. An OBJ file is usually an end product of the 3D modeling process generated by a CAD (Computer Aided Design). The default order to store vertices is counter-clockwise avoiding explicit declaration of face normals. Though OBJ files declare scale information in a comment line yet no units have been declared for OBJ coordinates.
