View Full Version : Importing files

What kind of files can be imported into :lwicon: 8.5 modeller. I see a lot of options for exporting lwo files, but hardly anything for importing.


tHREEL but you can call me AL.

dude...just open the 3DS model with Load....same goes for DXF, 3DS, LWO and a few others...I think all the formats are mentioned in the documentation...but its not a typical "import" as we all are used to....import in lw is for vector art importing...things like text, or shapes or any geometry you create in illustrator or freehand....those must be saved in the illustrator 1.1 format to import (saves as a .art file)

good luck.

Sorry, this looks a lot like the other thread on SW compatibility. We must have posted our threads at close to the same time. I'm looking at my Help content through :lwicon: modeler, and I can't find any mention of the other types of files just loading up when you go to load object.

tHANX for this info. Now, I have to wait until the files are sent to me, before I can try them out.
