Import folders from Alias Automotive 2018
« on: March 28, 2018, 09:03:12 am »
Hi,

I've just solved how to organise components and parts into folders in Alias Automotive 2018. I was hoping this organisation tree (known as "object lister" in Alias) would copy into the KeyShot 7 Scene List or Model Sets if I imported as a '.wire' into keyshot.

Sadly...nay.

I've tried the import settings I can think off (Group by 'layer', 'shader' or 'object' etc) but the surfaces are only organised via layer rather than folders or groups.

Is there anything I could be missing or an alternate file type (.igs, .step or .obj?) that would allow to keep the folder heirachy?


Cheers for any and all help!

Best,

HH_KS_7

Generally when working with layer-base programs, i.e. Alias or Rhino, we suggest organizing by 'material' and then in your 3D app, having everything you wish to be grouped on a layer to be the same color.

Update:

Parts are organised into the right folders when the same file is imported into Keyshot 6.2 - I'm now even more stumped, help!
