Hi,
i'm in the process of being hired by a fabrication company that has some designs already drawn in Autocad. They want me to take these drawings into lightwave and model/animate the parts (they are actually aluminium sections of bridges). Iv'e got 2 questions:

1. Is it possible to import autocad files into Lightwave? If so how?

2. Is there a source on the internet where i can find a downloadable variety of standard bolts/nuts for lightwave?

thanks v much for any help!

Alistair

P.S i'm supposed to start on Monday

There has been some discussion about this recently, the only thing I was able to add was:

You can have them export a .3DS file from AutoCAD, and LW will import that no problem.

Do a search on this forum, it works quite well - search for 'autoCAD' or 'dxf'. There was talk about exporting drawings to Illustrator then to LW or soemthing
