Loading 3ds model

i am trying to load a 3ds model like this…

player = (Node) assetManager.loadModel(“Models/Oto/Oto.mesh.xml”);

maze = (Node) assetManager.loadModel(“assets/models/maze.3DS”);

while first line works fine, second line gives exception

java.lang.IllegalStateException: No loader registered for type “3ds”

how is a loader registered…i m in jme3.

3ds isn’t supported, export the model as OgreXML.

Or, you can use Blender as a bridge : https://wiki.jmonkeyengine.org/legacy/doku.php/sdk:3ds_to_blender_to_jmp.
