ooppsss... forgot something in the last message

I don't know if there-s a direct way to import autocad files into XSI2, but you can import autocad files to 3DMAX and then use the "dotXSI4MAX" plugin to export from MAX as a .xsi file.

You can find it at softimage's site under the download-convert section.

Hope this helps!

getting Autocad files into XSI or SI3D is what we here at IOMEDIA do best You can export autocad files as an eps file, bring it into Adobe Illustrator, clean it up, etc. and export it as an Illustrator version 8.0 eps file. This works great and then you can use the curves to mesh operator. You can also take the long it as an autocad r14 format file, bring it into Microstation, convert lines to bspline and export this as an IGES file and import that into xsi. Hope this helps!
