Here you go (not all formats but a couple):

http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/

It is open source.

:shock: MeshLab can't handle more than 65535 vertices when exporting a 3ds file! Is this inherent to the .3ds format ?

Yes, but keep in mind it's really a freakin' old file format. ;o)

I was aware about it's "oldness", I had to get that confirmed :D

Maybe the lack of (operational) converters between obj and 3ds explains the gap between 3dsMax and Maya users, not sure that I'm kidding though :wink:

Adam, I take a rest and I'll try your links, I've just spent 48h trying to feed 3ds file format with a 160K vertices mesh :lol:
