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

07 July 2003, 11:35 PM
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. :beer:

Have them save the object file out in DXF format. If LW's native DXF importer doesn't work, try this one from Dstorm:

Hope this helps!
