CAD-3D 2.0 stores 3D objects using the 3D, 3D2, or 3D4 file formats. Each format
can store up to 40 objects and contains all information about the objects, 
including the lighting and color palette.

CAD-3D files are similar to the older file format, but they no longer require
the Motorola Fast Floating Point library (LIBF) for the storage of vertex
coordinates. Thia new version stores each coordinate in a two-byte word instead
of a four-byte floating-point value, saving a considerable amount of storage,
and making the file more easily usable by programs written with different
floating-point formats.
