"During the development phase we were supported by a very competent developer from AB4D who helped us in different cases and answered our questions in a real short period of time – regarding the forums posts as well as any direct contact via e-mail in very urgent issues. As there are many traps you can fall into reading 3ds files, we are glad that this tool was developed to make reading and using a 3ds- file in WPF as simple as it is now."
