View Full Version : AutoCad file to Lightwave Object file ? ? ?

I've got a quick question. How (if it's even possible) would one go from getting an AutoCad file in a .lwo file format?

I'm doing a project for someone who has the drawings with dimensions on an AutoCad file. And I would love to just import them. I've seen someone who had done something in 3DSM (lighting, texture, etc.) but the object was imported from a Cad file.

Can this be done with LW? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. :D

Export it as DXF file, however LW's DXF imorter is not very good, so it may not be the best. if autocad can exort to other file types (maya, max) then you can get converters for them to .lwo
