Don't know if it's the same model format, but Maya might be worth a shot.

the only thing you could try is copy the file and then rename it to .3ds and try it
or try to import as all formats.
none of my software imports .mld
but i found this model her for 35$ http://gunpoint-3d.com/model-ma.html

You could always try ModelConverterX.

A great little programme that works well with most models and should, at least, give you something to work from.

Nothing like digging up an old thread, eh?

With the aid of a friend (who may live to regret this) I'm trying to learn how to use Rhino. I've been doing 2D cad for a number of years but never tried 3D before. It's a very steep learning curve and it's amazing how much time I spend just faffing around. Hopefully some of what I learn will stick.

Anyone else here working with Rhino at the moment?

Yes, I am and I feel what you mean
The learning curve at beginning is really steep, but just try and find your way.

... and I noticed you are from Faroe: mhmm interesting.
I was wondering few weeks ago how is slope flying there.
And also I did conduct a piece called *Faroese circle dance* some time ago
Best regards,
Ric

Hello Michael!

As long as the old thread is useful it is perfect for me as I'm already hooked in!

Hope you make a good progress and have fun - Rhino has a pretty intuitive interface and so it should not take too long untill the first little success comes up and everything comming after this may be named by the word addiction.....

Have a good time and come back with your questions!

It's certainly a steep learning curve. I probably spent over 10 hours on it this weekend and only produced a very simple part. Next part I draw will take less time of course. I have access to tutorials that I will be watching over the next couple of weeks.

I like Rhino but I probably wont be able to afford a license. I don't know if there are alternatives that will do the same but at lower cost.

Moment of Inspiration is very similar and a lot cheaper, but it doesn't have as many advanced tools (depending on your needs, you will likely not need them -- I don't). It is actually developed by one of the original Rhino developers and uses the same geometry library. I'd recommend you test out the trial version if you like Rhino but don't want to spend that much.

Hansjoerg has taught me to use Rhino and therefore I recommend to go to his profile and check some of the threads he started - Rhino related.

Recommended.

I've hit a snag. I'm drawing a Hellcat using Hansjoerg method of aligning formers with a side and top view. At the moment all the formers are aligned to the side view. However I discovered the traced side view needs to be adjusted a bit. I can do this by moving control points around. However that means the formers are no longer aligned to the side view. Is there a way to lock the curves together, so when I change the side view, the formers follow it?

I know your issue. In short, no. You'll have to run the Scale1D command again (for both planes).

I've been using it about a year now and I think it's great.

I used Rhino until 1 year ago, great software ! More features than really necessary for our needs, but very intuitive.

Thanks to HansJoerg for the "immersive training", great weekend in Germany ;-)
