Autodesk 3ds Max
Autodesk 3ds Max is a third-party modelling program frequently utilised for games development. This software is used internally by N3V Games for content creation, and N3V Games provides official Autodesk 3ds Max Exporters to allow content built in this software to be exported to the Trainz environment. Users should also read the Exporting with Autodesk 3ds Max guide.
While Autodesk 3ds Max is not the only modelling software that can be used to create Trainz models, it is the only software officially supported for this purpose by N3V Games at the current time. N3V Games cannot offer assistance with using Autodesk 3ds Max, however various wiki pages exist describing the process, and the Trainz Forums frequently discuss this topic.
Autodesk 3ds Max is third-party commercial software and anyone wishing to use it must purchase an appropriate license from the Autodesk, the developers of that product. As the exporters are not compatible between product versions, users should ensure that the version they are purchasing is supported by N3V Games by checking the Downloads page.
