Conversion of stl files to 3ds file format

Most CAD/3D programs with 3D printing support should be able to import Stereolithography CAD files (.stl) and process the data so they can be saved in one of the common 3D formats. For some proprietary formats, such as .3ds filesfrom 3ds Max, it might be a little more tricky, but stl to 3ds conversion should be still doable.
