I'm having problems importing any 3DS models. Error msg "a component of path does not name and existing file or path is empty sting." I've never notice this problem before LW 2015. I've tried re-scanning the plug-ins. But I got the same result. Can anyone give me the name of the correct plug-in that I should have? And can LW 2015 do a custom reload of the plug-ins?

3DS Objects should be frozen to regular geometry.
You can't load dynamically generated objects, with history/stack modifiers etc.
They must be polygons and points. Or there should be 3DS running, and communicating with our 3D app, and this way mesh is generated, on the fly.
Export .OBJ f.e. in 3DS, then import it in LW.
