3DWin is a software utility that was built specifically to aid people in converting their 3D pictures with just a few clicks, with support for a pretty long list of file extensions.
The perks of a portable app
You are not required to go through the installation process, as this tool is portable. As a result, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes, and no traces will be left behind after its removal from the hard disk.
Another noteworthy aspect you should keep in mind is that you can take 3DWin anywhere with you and run it on any PC you come in contact with, by simply placing the program files to a removable storage unit.
The interface you are brought to, encloses a pretty cluttered and not so appealing design, as it is comprised of a multitude of buttons all scattered through the main window, as well as a few boxes. This means that novice users might find it a bit difficult to get around it, or at least need a bit of getting used to.
File types you can use and a few tweaks available
This software application only enables you to process one 3D picture at a time, and you can only upload it using a built-in file browser, as the “drag and drop” feature is not supported. At import, you can use RAW, 3DS, OBJ and LWO items, while at export you select a format from a pretty extensive list, which includes ASC, OBT, RPL, 3DS, OBJ, RWX, DXF, WRL and LWO.
In addition to that, you should know it is also possible to tweak a few options, such as inputting other values for the scale, edge detect angle, radius and smoothing angle, and enabling verbose and unifying mesh.
To sum up, 3DWin is a pretty handy piece of software when it comes to transforming 3D images from one format to another, although beginners might encounter some issues in navigating through it. It supports a pretty long list of formats at export, the response time is quite good and it does not burden the computer’s performance.
