Vectorworks/ 3ds imports into dot2 Scaling Probler

  • Hey Guys,


    Ive been using vectorworks to create a 3d model of my stage/environment and exporting it as a .3ds file to import into dot2 3d.


    My Problem is scaling, everytime I import into dot23d the scale gets all out of whack and my model ends up being many many times larger than it was inthe originnal file.


    Has anyone had any problems like this before?

  • I had it in Blender, when I forgot to apply scaling/translate modifications to mesh. Exporter used original dimensions without modifiers, therefore it was hardly like in editor view.
    After I applied all scaling, translations, positions modifiers to mesh directly, everything was ok.


    Just a hint, as I don't have experience with Vectorworks (but it should have similar basic features).

  • Hi all,


    I have the same experience with Vectorworks as you describe, Tobinpls.
    This has to do with a calculation problem between MA 3D and Vectorworks. This is not easy to solve.


    Please use the scaling function in the importer of MA 3D with factor 0,001. Then it should work.
    This is how I do that for my 3d models.


    I hope that helps.


    Cheers, Daniel
