Importing downloaded models

Recommended Posts

Seems like the older version of VW had more import options for 3D models found online, specifically OBJ. Am I right? I used to be able to go to Turbosquid and find models that I can use in my drawings, but now I have a harder time doing that.

How are others doing it?

thanks

Its an active request currently being discussed internally.

It was never available before as far as I am aware, but turbosquid used to primarily host 3DS files, which you can import into Vectorworks directly.

I cannot import 3DS files form Turbosquid at all, I have to open in SketchUp then export as a Sketchup file. This is cumbersome, any reason I can't do a direct imp or or any other workaround?

Thank you, JKibbe

Okay, here is the 3DS link, it will not remain for long, please download asap:

Link removed

Let me know if you would prefer a .rar file, and confirm download asap so I can delete.

Looks like that initial issue was just the file naming, "Kenworth ╨?2000" renamed to just "Kenworth 2000" allowed me to import the file in testing, but there were still some geometry relocation issues. Submitting these specifically to be fixed.

I'm not sure what you mean by the file named "Kenworth ╨?2000" I don't have anything named that. If you were able to import this at all, I would really love to know how you did it, or maybe even get this file from you. I really need it for a project.

Thank you, JKibbe

Apologies, at the moment this is all in testing for a future update and not something stable you would want to work with directly, I was just giving feedback.
