While there are many types of graphic formats widely used today, wouldnít it be nice to have one single program to view them all with? One that is fast to use, is easy to use and one in which you could convert from one format to another? Enter Quick 3D.

Quick 3D allows you to open most current graphic formats available today (especially the 3D types) that are used in many 3D applications. So does this really mean anything? Yes, if you donít have what is needed to view some one-of-a-kind image file format. Yes, if you are a developer. Yes, if you need to be able to convert from one format to another (Professional Version). If you have someone using a special file format and you donít own the same program that it was created in, using Quick 3D you could look at the image or drawing and if you have the Professional Version convert to something else.

Although Quick 3D can be used for imaging viewing, I think that if you are a professional developer (whether drawing engineering plans or creating 3D games), you will soon want the Professional Version as you can then for example open any 3DS file and convert it to the .X file format for insertion into your game.

Quick 3D also comes in the "Viewer Version" also which means if all you need to do is have the capability to look at the images and not be concerned with converting them, this is all you would need. So if you want it quick. . ..use Quick 3D. Using either version (Viewer only or Professional) in the non-registered mode you must click a couple "Next" buttons (Reminder Screens) when launching or exiting the program. The professional Version includes the Geometry as well as the Viewer Versions.
