How to import 3D files from:

 

3DMax

SketchUp

Maya

Lightwave

MODO

 

 

3DMax

From Max layers are exported by material names. That's why first you have to assign materials with the correct names to all elements of your geometry. After that you can export your 3Dmax files as obj format using the following parameters:

 

 

 

 

SketchUp

Fron  the "File" menu choose export 3D model. Choose obj as exportation format and

save.

 

 

Maya

Fron  the File menu choose Export all. Choose .obj as exportation format and save.

 

 

Lightwave

You can import the Lightwave .Lwo format directly in to FELIX. Please triple the geometry before you you import it in to FELIX (Shift T). Metanurbs are not yet supported.

 

MODO

Save in .Lwo format and import in FELIX.

FromMax layers are exported by material names. That's why first you have to assign materials with the correct names to all elements of your geometry. After that you can export your 3Dmax files as obj format using the following parametes:

From Rhino youcan  export in LWO. format. To have the correct layer naming in FELIX you have to: Copy the layer names on to the objects names by selecting each layer's mesh (right mouse button over the layer and choose select layer) and by coping the Layer names on to the objects names.

Select all geometries and from File choose "export selected. Choose the lightwave .LWO format and save. Import the .lwo file in to FELIX

Hi! is there a way to import a texture mapped 3d object into Felix Renderer and still preserve texture coordinates, material libraries, etc? As for human figures or complex geometry, like the objects already in place in the general object library, how can I get the same results? should I remap everything again?

Hi Carlos,yes, Felix reads UV data from following formats: obj, o3d and Lwo. You will notice in Felix  the UV option on each imported layer.

Hi ozzyzam, I have written you an email asking to send the file. Without the file I can not diagnoze the problem.
