    You should probably decompress them first. (if it is a format EFE supports and the compression format aswell, it will decompress it automatically) I think it is LZ77 or LZ11. You can use EFE to decompress aswell (Tools->Decompress)

    so it turns out it was compressed with LZ11 so I decompressed it, but it gave me another .bin file? This time is it _LZ_dec.bin

    Open it in a hex editor to see which format it is. Remember the extension doesn't especially say anything about the format.

    Make a screenshot of the first part of the file (in the hex editor) and post it here.

    Yep, it's just a bcmdl model. You could have opened the files with EFE directly.

    Are you trying to open a file from OOT/ Majora's Mask? If it's the case, I can help you, because these files are 3d models, and I can open them (I did it with MM/OOT).

    Gambia, The
    OoT/MM3D? https://github.com/xdanieldzd/N3DSCmbViewer ("releases" tab) - Note that it's no longer maintained, so if you or anyone else encounter problems with it, you're on your own.

    Also, on topic, the models in question are not from OoT/MM3D. These games use cmb (two different versions) and not CGFX, and there's no "_LZ.bin" files (OoT3D has no compressed files IIRC, MM3D's are .lzs).
