Collada DAE is the way to go.
The best way to start off is to export a simple box in the center of the world.
If that works, then apply a texture / transparency etc, one step at a time and and test at each single step.
Different exporters will have different levels of support for various features ( for 3DS Max, the in-built exporter was very limited ).
If your software doesnt have a DAE exporter, but can export to eg FBX, there are free converters for FBX to DAE. The more steps in your chain to get 3D from your modeller onto the iPad, the more problems you may run into - also there is the time required for running those additional steps.

Thank you very much every one. It is bit more clear to me.
What if I model in Autodesk Inventor Fusion for mac and I can save only in
F3d, sat, slt, sep.
Are there any converters fron those formats?
