That's fine; they're probably binary 3DMF, which will work just fine
(see the Rb3D FAQ at http://www.strout.net/info/coding/rb for more

me a small sample of a file that causes a crash, and I'll pursue it
with the Quesa team.

Search http://www.macwebdir.com/ for "3D" and you'll find a modeler or two.
