from Archicad 11 to 3d max 9
show user profile  mimimi
I have created a model in Acrhicad, registered it and saved it in 3ds.
I have imported the 3ds in 3d max 9 and I have a problem!!!

If I select everything my model is very small and there is a huge regtangular selection...I don't know what is that because there is nothing in the Archicad exept from the building itself...

I need to work in 3d Max to render but that "object" make me impossibile to get close to my model.
I don't know what is it???

Please help!

just put in the url for it... ie h(t)tp://

the check box "Covert to HTML" will take care of the rest for you.

how did you export it out of archiCAD?

I think it is a problem of 3d max 9, because I have no problem not opening it with cinema 4d or with 3d max 2010!!!! :)

It could be a scale issue. If your model is massively scaled up or down it will not seem to be importing quite right.
