I would like to import a .3ds model into Blender.
I looked at this video, and this thread, both are very old and don't seem to apply to the version of Blender I am currently using (2.76).
I have tried the
IMPORT command, which gave me this menu:
It seems weird that previous versions of Blender (as I suppose was the case because of the links above) would support 3ds and that the import function went away in later versions. But I'm still new to this, so I might just be looking in the wrong menu.
