    CFS3 Model Ripping Guide


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 3 Other Add-Ons - Utilities

    Description: The guide (html or pdf) covers how to use CFS3's M3D Viewer mode with 3D Ripper DX to Capture CFS3 models. Use of Blender to fix the warped/distorted models and saving the models as a COLLADA (.dae). Using Model Converter X to convert the COLLADA (.dae) model to a .3ds file that can be loaded into gMax/3DS Max for editing and rebuilding.

    This guide is not meant to show anyone how to pirate models and pass them off as their own. As Model Converter X says “Are you the author of this object or do you have permission from the author to convert this object?” Before you do any work check “read me” files that came with the aircraft/object. Make an effort to contact the author and always credit the author.

    Thanks Allen. Hi have a few models that I've made but lost the Gmax source so this could be useful.
