DWG 3D solids import Autocad 2000

Question

Hi,

I've tried the following suggestion for importing AutoCAD 2000 dwg. 3D solids:

Create a copy of the file to work on.

In AutoCAD, export as 3D Studio format.

Select All when prompted Options: AutoCAD Object Type, Auto-Smoothing, 5 degrees

Then:

Insert 3D Studio object - select file

Options: Add All, save to layers By Object

... when I do this, I get a message that says "Internal error number 8 - 3D Studio file import terminated".

Can someone help me with this?

I am running Vecterworks 9.5.2

Thanks.

Can you import a 3d studio object into VectorWorks? I never could, but I have tried.

3D Studio will let you save a file or selected objects as a DXF. VectorWorks can then read them fine as 3D polygon based shapes.

At the moment, a client has a rather large body of work we would like to leverage in VectorWorks, so I am going to try to find a way to get all these 3D Stuido files into IGES so we can keep the curved surfaces.
