[code] 3ds2obj.rb

This is not a plugin - but a rudimentary code snippet that extracts data from a binary .3ds and outputs it to std out.

usage:

$ 3ds2obj.rb model.3ds > model.obj

You got hold of file format specs for 3ds?

It appears there is a CAMERA chunk (0x4700), so if you can't find the format for that chunck, then you should be able to dump the chunk and view it in a hex editor to see if it can be deciphered.

So once the chuck is identified, it is followed by its length. this line gives you the number of bytes to read the rest chunk:

Code: Select all
when 0x4700
  puts "# CAMERA DATA"
  # NOT sure of the proper way to unpack?
  chunk_len = f.read(2).unpack('s')[0]
  chuck_len.times do
    # something?
  end
  next

Whoops, check that command-line example I gave for usage - I changed it.

$ 3ds2obj.rb model.3ds > model.obj

getting closer..
Code: Select all
* 4700 - Camera

 Describes the details of the camera in the scene

 start end size type   name
  0     3   4   float  Camera pos X
  4     7   4   float  Camera pos Y
  8    11   4   float  Camera pos Z
 12    15   4   float  Camera target X
 16    19   4   float  Camera target X
 20    23   4   float  Camera target X
 24    27   4   float  Camera bank ( rotation angle )
 28    31   4   float  Camera lens

I see , the camera is a fixed-length chuck so has no length - you just start reading the values:

Code: Select all
when 0x4700
        puts "# CAMERA DATA"
        xpos = f.read(4).unpack('f')[0]
        puts "xpos:#{xpos}"
        ypos = f.read(4).unpack('f')[0]
        puts "ypos:#{ypos}"
        zpos = f.read(4).unpack('f')[0]
        puts "zpos:#{zpos}"
        next


Although strangely the values are close but not exact as:

Sketchup.send_action(10624)

Ah, I see. It's a standalone ruby - not a SU ruby. have not looked at the code yet.

28 31 4 float Camera lens - what would this be then?

would this not be doing the same?
xpos, ypos, zpos = f.read(12).unpack('fff')

a one-liner.

How close? Minor - something that could be explained by floating precision?

Maybe - I'm in "make it work" mode. Optimize mode comes later.

Yeah, that's pretty much all there is to it. Make sure to read all the values; you can't skip them even if you don't use them.

I made a mistake when I said the values did not match - it works out no problem.

Code: Select all
when 0x4700
        puts "# CAMERA DATA"
        xpos, ypos, zpos = f.read(12).unpack('fff')
        puts "eye: (#{xpos}, #{ypos}, #{zpos})"

        tx, ty, tz = f.read(12).unpack('fff')
        puts "target(#{tx}, #{ty}, #{tz})"

        rotation = f.read(4).unpack('f')[0]
        puts "#rotation:#{rotation}"

        lens = f.read(4).unpack('f')[0]
        puts "#lens:#{lens}"
        next

Because of variable chunk length?

You managed to recreate an SU camera?
What's the lens value? AOV? FOV?
