Convert 3DS to USDZ via Python

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

How to Convert 3DS to USDZ Using Python

In order to convert 3DS to USDZ, 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


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 USDZ via Python

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

  1. Load 3DS file via the from_file of Scene class
  2. Call the method with USDZ’s format.
  3. Check resultant USDZ 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 Sudio (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.

    usdz What is usdz File Format?

    A file with .usdz is an uncompressed and unencrypetd ZIP archive for the USD (Universal Scene Description) file format that contains and proxies for files of other formats (such as textures, and animations) embedded within the archive and runs them directly with the USD run-time without any need of unpacking. USDZ files are packages whose design is based on the new Ar-level abstraction of a package. Usdz was registered with IANA and has media type name of model and a subtype name of vnd.usd+zip and its details can be found as on IANA registration page.
