Creating viewer for .3ds-files


We are a group of students who have undetaken a project which domain includes opening a .3ds-file using OpenGL. If anyone here is aware of any good tutorials or existing code for this topic, we would reallly appreciate if you let us know. We’re posting this topic both on the beginner and advanced forums, since we’re new to this forum and don’t really know where to address ourselves. :wink:

To find sample code on loading 3ds file and then displaying it using OpenGL take a look here or here .
