A MAX file is a computer file format commonly associated with Autodesk's 3ds Max software, which is widely used in the field of 3D modeling, animation, and rendering. MAX files serve as containers for storing all the data related to a 3D scene, including the 3D models, textures, lighting, camera settings, animations, and other scene elements. These files allow users to save and share their 3D projects, enabling seamless collaboration and easy access to complex 3D scenes.

Within a MAX file, all the components of a 3D scene are organized in a hierarchical structure, making it efficient for the 3ds Max software to load and work with the data. Users can modify the objects, materials, or animations within the scene and save their changes back to the MAX file. Additionally, MAX files can be exported to various formats for use in other 3D software or game engines, making them versatile for interchanging data between different applications.

Due to the extensive capabilities of 3ds Max and the richness of information stored within MAX files, they can become relatively large, especially for complex scenes. It's crucial to manage and organize assets properly within the scene to maintain optimal performance and avoid potential issues related to file size and loading times.

MAX Converter Capabilities

Our MAX 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within MAX files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

An OBJ file is a widely used file format in 3D computer graphics that serves as a standard representation for 3D models. It stands for "Object" and was originally developed by Wavefront Technologies. OBJ files store geometric data, such as vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, and face information, describing the surface of a 3D object. This data is presented in plain text, making OBJ files human-readable and easy to exchange between various 3D modeling and rendering software.

The structure of an OBJ file is based on vertices (points in 3D space), which form the building blocks of the 3D model's shape. These vertices are organized into faces, typically triangles or quads, representing the surfaces of the object. Alongside the geometric data, OBJ files can also include material information, enabling the application of textures and shaders to the 3D model, providing it with color, reflectivity, and other visual properties.

Due to its simplicity and compatibility across different software platforms, the OBJ file format has become a popular choice for sharing 3D models. However, being a relatively basic format, OBJ files may not support complex features found in more advanced formats like animation data or high-level shader definitions. Despite this limitation, OBJ remains a widely adopted format in various industries, including gaming, animation, virtual reality, and 3D printing.

Information for converting from MAX to OBJ

Your MAX file will be converted to a OBJ file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our MAX 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. Our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information if present in your MAX file, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
