Title: [Info requested] Compatibility with DXF files from MBS
Post by: javie2004 on March 15, 2017, 03:39:26 am
Hello, we use a CAD software called MBS to design metal buildings. It outputs DXF files. When I try to import one of the dxf files I receive an import error. Can you please tell me if you support DXF files which have been output from MBS. Here is the MBS website for reference.

Hi javie2004

Thanks for your interest in Lumion, and for the link.

For Lumion to read a DXF file it needs to be in a 3D format for DXF.  It's most likely, as you get an error, that the DXF is 2D data only.

We have no experience with MBS software.  I'm not able to tell from a quick look at the web site what other file formats are supported.  What 3D formats can MBS export to?
