What is an .3DW file?
.3DW is 3D World Studio File
3D scene created by Leadwerks' 3D World Studio, a program used for creating 3D environments for games run with the Leadwerks game engine; contains buildings, terrain, lighting information, and other environment details.
3D World Studio projects can be exported to Leadwerks, Torque, 3D Game Studio, Dark Basic Pro, and Blitz3D formats. 3D World Studio is discontinued and no longer available.
File Type 2 Studio Store Visualizer 3D Environment File
A 3DW file contains a 3D environment created by Esko Studio Store Visualizer, a module that can be added to Esko Studio to visualize product designs in retail store environments. It stores information about a 3D retail environment, which includes lighting, floor, aisles, and shelving information.
3DW files are linked to .VTPR project files. When a VTPR file is opened in Studio Store Visualizer, the program loads the information in the 3DW file. The VTPR file and the linked 3DW file should be located in the same folder. VTPR files are saved by default in the following location:
~/Documents/Store Visualizer /Projects
VTPR templates are located in the following location:
~/Documents/Store Visualizer /Templates
If you share a VTPR file with another user, you must include the linked 3DW file and any linked .L3DW external library files, or else you will not be able to visualize the product in the 3D environment.
