Does anyone know if a good way of easily importing CAD data into blender using either the IGS or STP formats?
This is part of a larger idea I’m exploring. I’m an industrial designer (product designer) and I think that with a bit of work, Blender could be a useful addition to the ID toolset. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nowhere near it yet, but I think that Blender could really push some boundaries with the right focused improvements.
Making Blender into a decent modeler for industrial design would be a gigantic, fundamental shift (and probably for the worse, based on your userbase). But purely as a rendering studio, it could be brilliant if the right interface is developed for it. I’d save out IGS or STP files, and render them in Blender. Anybody have any ideas?
