Import/CAD tests: MODO, Maya, 3ds Max

Seeing how different file formats and file conversion can be such a difficult area of a pipeline, I thought I’d do a few tests to see how Max, Maya, and MODO compare.

I’ve been importing some commonly used CAD file formats, such as STL, IGES, and a few others. Interesting seeing how they compare. Will be throwing in some C4D testing, as well

Hope to have some updates and pics soon!

  1. Excellent, Thank You Nick 🙂 ! At work we use nPower Translator with 3ds Max 2015 for importing .STP files. It’s been working great, but I’ll be very interested in seeing / hearing about your results.
