Conversion of sldprt files to 3ds file format

You can import SolidWorks files (.sldprt) as 3ds Max object (.3ds) files.  Such sldprt to 3ds conversion can be done from the application Menu ► Import ► Select File To Import dialog ► Files Of Type drop-down list ► Choose SolidWorks (.sldprt).

Alternatively, some other 3D modeling / conversion programs may also support this conversion, but it's usually best to use the default software for best translation of 3D data.
