View Full Version : Implement Nurb Curve Export under export obj file
11 November 2004, 07:48 AM
Does anyone know how to implement nurb curve funtion for exporting to obj file in XSI?

I don't think that the .obj file is designed to carry parametric data. I know that the options exist (but are greyed out) in the export options, but I have never seen a .obj file that could carry that type of data... nor have I seen any other app with that ability.

So is there anyway I can export out a curve from XSI into MAYA??

I don't know, if maya has an IGES importer, but you can export in XSI in IGES format for curves/surfaces.

- The obj format only supports polygons.
- You can try the dotXSI plugin for maya, get it for Maya 4.5 and 5 here:
- and Maya 6 here:
You can also try the FBX plugins:

Maya has an *.iges exporter that can be imported into XSI. I have made some experimenting with nurbs-sufaces and it works great.
