3DS Export for SketchUp is a 3D Studio 3DS file export plug-in for Google SketchUp. This plug-in gives SketchUp the ability to objects in SketchUp to 3d polygon meshes in a 3DS file. 3DS Export for SketchUp tessellates objects in a SketchUp document into a set of triangular meshes. These meshes are then exported to a 3DS file as mesh objects. The 3DS file can then be imported into a variety of CAD applications. 3DS Export for SketchUp is very easy to use. Once installed, it automatically loads itself into SketchUp and adds a new submenu called "3DS Export for SketchUp" to the SketchUp Plugins menu.
