3DM Import for AutoCAD - Rhinoceros 3DM file import plug-in for AutoCAD

     Menu Button       3DMImport > Import
     Command       3DMImport

This command imports a mesh from a 3DM file.

This command reads mesh objects from a 3DM file and adds them as PolyFace mesh objects to the active drawing. The 3DM file format is the native file format of Rhinoceros, the NURBS modeling software from McNeel.

To import a 3DM file

1. Select Import from the 3DMImport menu or type 3DMImport at the AutoCAD command prompt and press Enter.

2. The AutoCAD file Open dialog box is displayed. Browse for the 3DM file you wish to import and click Open.

3. The 3DM Import for AutoCAD Options dialog box is displayed. Set the options as required and click OK.



Note: When importing a 3DM file object whose vertices exceed the PolyFace Mesh limit, the object will be imported as individual 3D Face objects instead. This is an AutoCAD limitation. In such a case, when converting the mesh into a solid select all the 3D Face objects.
