Unfotunately ArcScript You mantioned, doesn't work with AG 10 :( Do You have any solution ?
Import 3d Files will read a .3ds file and then convert it into a multipatch file. You can then use the multipatch file in 3d analysis in ArcMap, but there is not direct conversion to these formats.
There is no direct conversion from Multipatch to TIN. What I was trying to emphasize earlier is that you can use the multipatch you create in some of the 3d tools. There is an ArcScript Tool and an enhancement request that is currently among the ideas to be considered in the future. Currently you cannot do it with out of the box tools.
I am not sure if this would work for you or not (depends on your 3DS model). Here's what you can try: - Import your 3DS model into ArcGIS as a Multipatch. - Convert multipatch into point feature using Feature Vertices to Points (requires ArcInfo)- Create a TIN from point feature that are converted from multipatch. Attached are some example on when it works and when it will not.
