Maya -> SOFTIMAGE|3D
(Click here for a Korean version)
Lots of people ( including me ) has had a huge problem with importing IGES files into Softimage|3D. But the solution is near :)
Note: Maya exports by default the file as *.iges, change the syntax to *.igs otherwise Softimage doesn't recognize it
In the model module,
go to GET > DB Manager. Create a new database called IGES_DB.
Lets try it. Go to Tools module and to Import > Objects > igesImport+. In the dialog box you get up, at the bottom you have three choices. Database, Scene/Model, Iges File.
Database: this is the place it's going to be saved.
Scene/Model: this is what you will call your scene in the database.
the file you want to import
So find your IGES file,
name the Scene/Model myigesmodel.dsc
You can change the database to the name of the database you are working with at the moment. But remember that you will not see your model until you do Get > Scene and find the iges scene.
Mostly people think that they will see the file that they imported (which actually make sense.. avid?? ) and therefor doesn't think that it works... but it's there... hidden in the database :)
best of luck!
