Here’s one just for the Pythoneers in the house. Python3DS:
python3ds is a small set of Python routines for reading 3ds archives. It features support for animations, textures, and collision detection, and it is compatible with pyopengl and pygame.
New for the 0.2 release:
This release adds a new engine for animations, collision functions, exportation of 3ds files to Dict types, and a small demo.
