Anyone know how to get Vectorworks files into Max efficiently?
show user profile  CAD Monkey
Hi Guys,

Well I'm still in the fold, and I could do with a bit of advice if possible please:

I have just started a new job, and the software structure is that the 2 other designers use Vectorworks and Carrera, but they've got me a seat of 3ds Max Design 2013. The problem is that I have to use Vectorworks too. Does anyone know how to deal with this efficiently please?

Usually I use AutoCAD LT to draw my plans and elevations, then import this into max and do all my 3d modelling in Max. In this role though, I will be expected to model in 3d in vectorworks and then import into Max. The problem is that I've seen an ex colleague do this and the geometry that it produces in Max is utter shite - like someone has gone boolean crazy!

Could anyone give me any ideas please? They have their reasons for using vectorworks, so I don't want to fight it at this stage, so thought I'd ask on here if anyone has any ideas?

Many thanks in advance as always guys!


Stewart Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!
