Actually I am a student at Aalen University (Germany). For my final exam (bachelor-thesis) I’m working on a softwareevaluation of 3D-Programms for use in technical documentation purposes (repair-animations…). In that evaluation blender also takes part of a comparison model. But I’ve got a problem with the import. The files I get from the constructors are in the STEP-format, so blender can’t import them naturally. I tried to convert them with available programs to .obj (wavefront ) or .vrml data. Blender can import those formats, but the imported data is not useable for my animation, because parts are split up in billions of pieces or stick together as just one mesh. Is there a possibility to import the CAD-data, so that all parts are still separated?
My deadline for the evaluation is end of august and a budget is just not given, but there is no work for you to be done, except helping me with the import.
I’ve got some usecases on which I have to test blender, it would be really awesome if a professionell blender-user could pm me for some further questions. But first things first.
Thanks for your time/help!
