    3D Modelling

    Does anyone know if it's pretty easy to link files created in Lightwave or any other 3D Modelling program to C++ and use them? And where can I get a free Trial Version Of Lightwave?
    Thanks

    Importing them into C++ (raw) isn't going to be that useful, you really need a graphics library (eg. opengl), which has an import function (possibly written by someone else) to import the 3D models.
