Point placement error when importing a 3ds file

I am trying to import a .3ds file into ArcScene and am having trouble using the Point Placement option.


I have no trouble getting the object into ArcScene without any location parameters. I used the "Import 3D files," selected my object, and it imported with no problem. I would, however, like to use the "Point Placement" option. It says to upload a point file in which the "Symbol Field" has the name of the file it correlates to. I made a point file, added a "Symbol" field, and populated the only record with the file name of the 3D object.


This results in an error (see attached image), and I can't find anything on the forums about it.
