Importing 3ds Models
When I need to solve a problem, I always like to use our own software if at all possible! As I needed to produce some compelling graphics to promote a 50% off sale on one of my other products, I started searching on Google Images. I find this is normally a good way to fire the creative juices at the start of a design project.
Next I review the stock photo sites. The one I use most frequently is Istockphoto. I’m a contributor there (http://www.istockphoto.com/jellypie) so I normally have a handful of earnings in my account that I can convert to credits and purchase a really nice stock image.
However, looking at some of the images made me realize that I could make better images myself using a 3d modeling package and 3D Box Shot Pro.
So it was that the first 3D Box Shot Pro Model Pack was born! One of the features of 3D Box Shot Pro that I’m sure that most people overlook is that it can import .3ds format 3d models. Please take a look at the following video that shows 3D Box Shot Pro loading in .3ds files from the model pack:
The images below are all included in the first 3D Box Shot Pro 3D Model Pack. You can download the 3D Model Pack below. It contains 25 text based models you can import into 3D Box Shot Pro. You can then apply your own colour, lighting, reflections and shadows and export a transparent .PNG file ready to use on your website, or promotional literature:
Here are couple of examples exported from 3D Box Shot Pro:
The 3D Box Shot Pro Model Pack Volume 001 includes the following models:
If the Volume 001 Model pack proves popular (I.E. send us some feedback!) we will make a volume 002 model pack based on the feedback we receive. Putting this simply if there's a model you'd like to see that's not in the model pack, please contact us and let us know!
