I designed a model in LDraw/LeoCAD and exported it as
.3ds file. I thought that I can import
.3ds file to edit it later. Now I want to edit the model but I don't see any option to import the
.3ds file in LeoCAD. I tried my best to open it but useless.
How can I open a
.3ds file in LeoCAD?
.3DS is a 3D image file format, a rendering of what you designed in LeoCAD. All information necessary to recreate your build (i.e. what bricks to use) will be stripped from it. I suppose that theoretically this information can be recreated for small builds, but for medium-sized to large builds, this will simply be infeasible. Hence I think it quite unlikely that it's possible to import .3ds back into LeoCAD.
