Export problem in 3ds Max


I’m a beginner in 3D max. I imported a .3ds file in 3ds Max to modify it.
when I export this file from 3d max, all the objects (Truck parts) are exported the same color (red in my case). I tested the exported file in 3D max and Vue.
please note that exporting the same file as a collada file has no problems with colors.
Thats my first day using 3dmax, and I hope its a simple problem.
Thanks alot.


Don’t use the .3ds format, it doesn’t support very many features. Use .obj for simple geometry or .fbx for things more complex.


If you are using Max 2013 and exporting as .3ds, the Import/Export module has been broken for some time.
It has just been fixed in PU6, it may have something to do with your problem as texture information wasn’t being saved with the files.
