What is an MAX file?

A MAX file is a three-dimensional scene file created by 3ds Max, a 3D modeling, animation, and rendering application. It may contain multiple models that include wireframes, textures, lighting effects, shading, animation, and other 3D design elements.

More Information

MAX files are used for developing professional graphics for games, film, and television. 3ds Max allows you to export the MAX file to many different formats, including .FBX, .AI, .DWG, .DXF, .IGS, .SAT, .STL, and many others.

NOTE: 3ds Max was previously known as 3D Studio MAX, which also saved scenes using the ".max" extension. You can still export scenes to .3DS files in the latest version of the 3ds Max software.
