3ds Max Connector Released!

3ds Max Connector now available!

NVIDIA Omniverse 3ds Max connector is a plug-in that offers a robust toolkit for Autodesk 3ds Max users to live-sync and send model data to an NVIDIA Omniverse Nucleus Server. This not only gives 3ds Max users a first-class renderer through Omniverse View or Omniverse Kit but also the ability to open, edit, and sync with any application supporting Omniverse Connect. We currently support 3ds Max 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Here’s a quick highlight of some of the features in the first release of 3ds Max Connector:

  • Import and Export
    • Variants and instances supported
    • 3ds Max Omni Lights
    • Physical Lights set to Point Shape
