Hi all,

anything new about this ?

there is a lot of free .lsp to extract points coordinates from dxf / dwg format to csv.

that would be a good start to have a feature that can import 2D or 3D from csv. even we have to redesign the faces of the polygon.

well thx for your reply,

We have implemented the possibility to import files from Sketchup using the open DAE (Collada) file format, and therefore from AutoCAD (using FBXConverter).
This will be available in version 6.60 which should be published soon.

You can already import a CSV topography in the shading scene using the menu "File > Import > CSV ground data". But this is intended to import topography, not 3D objects.

Running into some issues when trying to import a .dae file, originating from autocad. Ive gone through the process of converting from: .dxf>.fbx>.dae using the Autodesk FBX Converter tool as mentioned in the help topics. The issue is that, when imported, its showing 0 Faces, 0 vertices, 0 objects. I had some luck with one particular .dae file, showing me 2 faces, and giving me the selection option on the additional tab of "Materials". But when that one was imported, it pulled two oddly shaped rectangles that had 0 correspondence with the actual design. Im at a bit of a loss here since re-creating a actual layout in the construction window is extremely tedious, time consuming, and often resulting is failure to replicate. Ive followed the help topics for importing from Sketchup and Autocad, but it doesnt seem to be granular enough. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
Also open to suggestions to replicating a designed array in the construction/perspective tab. One that falls outside of a typical rectangle.
