    Nope, '.max' filetype is poorly documented so only the 3DS max program can open them, basically anyone who makes a model submission with only this filetype is an asshole and you need to tell them to add '.obj' files as well.

    Yup, there is one tool named - 3ds max with smd plugin. Easy as that huh ? You can have 3 years free version of 3ds max from student autodesk, all you have to do is register and download even newest version of 3ds max

    So essentially you can't without installing a bloaty program you only have access to for 3 years. It's probably faster to ask someone to convert it for you.
