What is an M3G file?
An M3G file is a 3D model saved in the Mobile 3D Graphics (M3G) format. M3G files are used in mobile video games. The M3G format is compatible with the mobile Java platform and OpenGL for Embedded Systems (OpenGL ES).
Nokia (in collaboration with others) created the original M3G format as part of developing the Mobile 3D Graphics API for the Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME). Many 3D mobile games use this standard to incorporate and show 3D graphics to players.
Other companies, such as Electronic Arts, have since expanded on and modified the original M3G format. 3D models included in these companies' games may still use the .m3g extension, even if they are saved in a variant of the original M3G format.
NOTE: M3G files may also contain embedded textures.
How to open an M3G file
You can open an M3G file with Autodesk 3ds Max (Windows). You can also export 3D models from 3ds Max as M3G files, if you have the M3G Exporter plug-in installed.
