Exporting from VectorWorks 12.5 to C4d

Recommended Posts

I'm having having problems exporting from VectorWorks 12.5 to Cinema 4d.

After selecting export in VW 12.5 menu, all of the normal export windows are open & everything seem to be working, but at the end of the process VW 12.5 does not generate a file at all.

I'm using the updated version of the plugin from the Maxon web site.

I running MacBook Pro 10.6.2 Snow Lepoard. Is anyone else experiencing the

same problems & what can be done to fix this?

No. 3ds does not separate the model good enough. The best way is to use

Vectorworks Exchange. You can then add materials to any part of the model.

Another export file format I've tried is "Export Stereo Lithography" that works better then 3ds. It doesn't work better then Vectorworks Exchange, but it's the second best. Once you import this format into C4d you need to "explode" it, & some times everything is not separated. So you end up having to work with polygons which is a time hog.
