• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

3DS Max 3DS Max how to install and run P3Dv4 SDK <HELP>

Hello folks, i was trying to figure out how i can get models from 3ds to P3D but the SDK i have troubles with. 3DS MAX 2018 with P3Dv4 SDK and i would like if someone could guide and show me how to install the SDK correctly in max and how i can get to using the tools. How to tag parts, place materials and textures and how to export to sim if anyone could help out?
All that is covered in the SDK documentation which is included in the SDK download. Or you can read it online at Prepar3D’s website. What specifically is the problem installing it?
I have the SDK and i went into max and did that user path config thing and in the 3rd party plugin i located the SDK folder for ‘3DSMAX 18’ and clicked done or ok then i restarted max. After doing that i am curious if there is something else i should do or is it something i should run or start or something because i dont have that P3D tools tab at the top of my Max
As I remember, when configuring the path to the sdk, you need to locate the folder in the dialogue box, click on any file in that folder and only then click on “Use Path”. Otherwise ask at L-M.
