Hi Colin, I just downloaded

Hi Colin,

I just downloaded your script. It's a big help. Just one question tho. I believe Cippall asked previously if .3ds support was available. Did you ever get around to that ? I just gave it a try and it's not "seeing" .3ds files. I only ask cos I haven't found any other batch importers for Max at all and I've got 600 .3ds objects to merge into a scene. Unless you know of any other scripts, plugins or what have you which could do that, your importer could be a lifesaver :)

Thanks again for your time and effort.
