    I have an LWO file. It is an artists 3-D rendering of the Toutatis Asteroid which is expected to come VERY close to Earth this year in late September. I think LWO stands for Length-Width-Orientation, or something to that affect.

    I'd like to convert it into a JPEG file so that I can use it as wallpaper.

    The LWO file is 226K in size.
    (just a hair too large to attach here)

    Can someone convert it for me? Please PM your email addy to me and I will send the file.

    Thanks a million!

    Thanks James. This is a personal project, and is in no way really too important, so please don't let it consume much time.

    If you're interested in the asteroid here's a JPL link to the playable orbit projection.

    It is expected to arrive on or right around Yom Kippur this year, so there are some biblical ramifications (even though I'm not a Bibal thumper)

    Link
    Applet takes a minute or so to load, but worth the wait.

    Thanks again,

    Mike

    Awesome converter. It allows me to rotate the 3-D object and everything! Thanks a million!

    Unfortunately, I was hoping that it was the picture below and large enough for wallpaper.

    Either way, I now have a great 3-D viewer/converter. Thanks!

    I am done with clients for the day and helping people here is a nice way to learn more about other things.


    That converter, the free one, is pretty wicked.
