I have been working on a Rhino to Alias direct translator for some time. It is still in active development. Please download the plug-in and try out the functionality. Please do post your views on it. As of now the following Rhino data is retrieved to the corresponding Alias objects.

Requirements

Installation

Please copy the unzipped plug-in file to user Documents/Autodesk/Alias/ or somewhere you can find it. Open Alias and open Utilities > plug-in manager.  Open the new rhino_to_alias.plugin. The plug-in is installed under the "File" menu.

Operation

Click on "Import .3dm" menu. A file browser will open.  Click on the .3dm file you want to import. Click Import. The file is retrieved on a new Stage. Please be patient if the file size is very large as it does not give any progress bar. Please check the Alias prompt for any errors during translation.

Limitations

This software is still in active development and will expire on 1 Oct 2012. Please check back for an updated version soon.

Feedback

Please leave you comments on existing features, wish lists, problems  etc.
