He wants to transform a "Left couch" in "right couch" or the opposite...

I tried to mirror the object in blender (I am not a blender pro) but it does not work properly.....

yes, the "mirror" i want is to transform a left couch in right couch.
I have also tried on blender 2.7, but the result is not good at all, i have the same result as Gilles.

Can you help me babe?

Thanks for assisting Gga_Mars.

I tried using the FBX Converter to save the model to DAE but SkUp did not read it and its not providing 3DS output, and SkUp does not import Obj.

There are still a few 3D Converter tools around:
1.  Okino, but costs a bit
2.  3D Converter
3.  Accutrans.

You are right, finally i used blender to open the "failed dae" then export in .dae and it worked ...

Thanks you,
