I’ve looked through the interface, but I don’t see any option to import data from CAD software. I’m used to using CAD, and I can desgn my polylines very quickly and accurately there, while creating polylines in blender is slow, tedious, and imprecise.
As an example, I thought I would learn Blender by doing a quick and dirty animation of the puzzle cube from Hellraiser. It literally took me 10 minutes to design the two pieces needed in cross section, which could be extruded to make the actual pieces.
However, when I looked through Blender…there was no “import DXF” or “Import DWG” option. They’re simple lines, a 3D animation program should be able to get them into blender…I even tried selecting them and hitting Ctrl-C to put them on the clipbooard, then going into Blender and hitting ctrl-V, thinking “Surely Blender can take vector information off the clipboard…” but no dice.
