Import meshes from other applications and convert to masses

Did anybody developed a workflow for this task?

Thanks in advance.


Thanks Matt,

It seems that ACIS SAT is the format to use importing from 3ds Max. The subdivision can be a little fuzzy with smooth surfaces but the important info comes through.



Hi Marcello,

you can import meshes from other applications. If you are inside of an in-place family the mesh will take on certain properties of the mass once you hit 'finish mass'. You will need a closed volume in order for it to be used by conceptual energy analysis and other features.
