I just got this press release from Bob McNeel at Robert McNeel and Associates (makers of Rhino3D):

nPower Software (http://www.npowersoftware.com/) has just released two Max/VIZ plug-ins, Power Translators and Power Solids, to directly import Rhino geometry (3DM, IGES, STEP, and SAT files) into Max or VIZ as trimmed NURBS surfaces and solids.

Once imported, these NURBS objects are tessellated at render time to produce high quality images without polygonal artifacts.

Power Solids also provides animated NURBS editing tools including Booleans and fillets.

Power Translators is US$295 with a US$195 introductory price until 15-Dec-2002. Power Solids is US$495 with a US$395 introductory price until 15-Dec-2002.

For more details, contact nPower Software (http://www.npowersoftware.com/)



Best regards,
- Bob McNeel

That's pretty cool. Will these imported models be animatable?

Thank you for posting this good news, I was going to yesterday but I just couldn't wait for CGTalk to come back online. I would encourage other Rhino using waveys like me to bug nPower for a LW compatible version.:buttrock: :wavey: :buttrock:

It sure is good to see someone heading the right way. Many will be delighted to hear this.:thumbsup:
