EDGELIB is equipped with native 3D model loaders. These are platform independent and don't rely on external libraries. They are based on a plugin mechanism and can be disabled to decrease the file size of your executable.

The following popular model formats are supported:

  • 3D Studio (.3ds)
  • Milkshape 3D (.ms3d)

Also supported is EDGELIB's internal 3D format (.e3d), which has the following advantages:

  • Built for fast and efficient loading
  • All data is saved as fixed point
  • Can be expanded in new releases without breaking compatibility
  • An open documented format which can be used by everyone
  • Custom chunks can be added safely for your own custom data

A conversion tool is included in the EDGELIB SDK to convert your models fast and easily.
