    Hi,

    I'm new to Android development so am curious as to what's the easiest way of importing 3D models into Android? I have access to 3DS Max and Daz Studio (unfortunately I can't get Blender to install on my setup).

    You have to read up on the file type you wish to use and figure out the structure. Then you must create a series of classes and methods to handle this.

    I have been working on a loader for MD2 files (Popular among Quake 2 fans. Easy format and great for low-poly models). I believe it is done, but I have no had a chance to test it yet. Once I get a chance to test it, I can send you a copy. I also have a TGA texture file loader that does work properly. The only thing I haven't finished yet is the animation code, though I am getting close.
