    export to 3ds

    I have objects I made in lightwave that I need to export to 3ds files. Every time I try to export them I get a error that says it on exports objects with 3 vertices. How do I fix this? is there someone that can fix the files for me. They are real simple files of gymnastic equipment that I need to import into a house design program. Please help!

    Try tripling the geometry before exporting.

    Hit "shift-T" with all the geometry (or none) selected.

    OR using the Tabs/Menus: Multiply > Subdivide > Triple.

    Good to not only teach keyboard shortcuts but where things are in the UI; especially for new users.
