Dear colleagues,

I've been playing around with John Mardaljevic's great 3ds2rad script that
he send out to the list a few weeks ago. Great information, very useful
John! I have two further going questions which some of you might have
encountered in the past:

* Is there a way to extract a view point defined in a 3ds file into

* A problem with AutoCAD 14R seems to be that when it exports into 3ds
file format the naming of the layers changes from whatever they are in
AutoCAD into m_GLOBAL_x (x=1,...,n). This is really bothersome as it forces
you to go through the file and identify what GLOBAL_x is. Is anybody aware
of a workaround for this?
