What 3d file formats are supported for importing?
.obj is the only one I know that works.
.blend and .3ds can't be imported
but I can't open my .obj files!
Idk, but you'll probably need to provide more detail to get an answer. Any error messages? Show us some screenshots of trying to import it.
Thank you posting your query on forums.
We can only import .OBJ format in Dimension CC.
Please provide any crash or error message you get while importing the .obj file.
I'm trying to import .obj files exported from Rhino. It's not working and I'm not getting any error messages.
It would be nice with some more information about recommended settings etc.
I'm having the same issue. I save a file to .obj from Rhino and when I try to import it doesn't work and no error message.
Hello. That worked. However, only from Rhion5. I wasn't able to get output from Rhino4 to import.
Those settings do not work for me. I'm using Rhino 5 on a Mac. When I drag the file in, Dimension highlights where it can be placed, so it looks like it should work. But when I try placing it, nothing happens.
I would request you to try importing the file from File>Import>3D model.
There is a known issue with Rhino 5 files not importing, but we do not have a fix yet. It does seem to be a Rhino specific issue and we have it on the list to investigate.
I tried it again and it worked. I must have missed a setting or something last time. Thanks!
I am trying to import a .obj file and it is giving me an "Unable to Import Model" error.
This was an .IGS file created from SolidWorks and converted to .obj with CAD Exchanger program. The file size id fairly large and has many different parts and assemblies. I tried a similar file previously that had fewer parts and assemblies, and it worked fine. It makes me think there is a limit to the number of assemblies and parts.
The initial IGS output setup for the file converter was "Exporter Version V2" with "Manifold Solid B-Rep Object" selected. I also tried the "Bounded Surfaces" option, and the "Exporter Version V1" option.
Please send the .obj file to firstname.lastname@example.org with the same description you added above and we can take a look. There are no hard coded limitations on import size or parts, but it might be something we just haven't tested.
