3ds imported model is disappearing

Hi there

I've managed to enable my 3DS import option in MAYA 6.5 on the MAC.

The problem I'm having now is that once I've imported the model it seems to be disappearing.

First I can't seen anything, then I pan out quite a bit and I start to see the mesh, but as soon as I start to see and go through it it starts to disappear.

Ive tied a render and the model renders fine. But I just can't see it and work on it.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks
Rory

sorry the render don't seem to be working either, it will sometimes render but when I move around and pan out and rerender it comes out as bits.

Sounds like your mesh is so big it's going beyond the clipping planes in maya. Two ways to fix this. Scale the mesh down in max and re-import. Select your perspective camera (or any other camera for that matter) and increse the far clipping plane from 1000 to 100000000. This way when you pull back it shouldn't disappear.
