Hi PaQ - one more file to test here if you could, this one has just one big n-gon in it with 814 points, it should look like this:



It should be a pretty good test to see what kind of n-gon ability will be possible there.

In the last version of 3DS Max (2009 & Design 2009) the OBJ importer is the previosly plugin by Guruware gw::ObjIO.
So now the Max importer is now so bad at all.
But FBX is a more modern standard and your work is highly appreciate.

Ciao
Luca

Hi PaQ...

Can you share your setting when import fbx file to max ?
Maybe you can give me a screen capture of the import dialog window.

Thanks

Well I'm using the default settings, I didn't change anything. Just using the last version for my max version from autodesk.
Looks like it isn't working for you ?

If that works for Wings3D, seems that must be the same for 3Dmax ;)

Here you can download the newer version of the FBX importer/exporter for free. It's necessary only a registration (but is not really necessary, at the end you will be redirect directly to the download page).

Hi Pilou,

> That works fine for the 2 examples above!!!

That's good news too, because Wings had some difficulty reading in OBJ files also.

So it looks like this will also be the best way to move data into Wings as well as Max.


> What is your?

I think it's fbx 6, or 6.1 to be exact but that is compatible with 6.

Hi Anis, I think your version you were using was 3 years older than the latest importer. It looks like they have made a lot of improvements to n-gon handling since then.

Anyway that is good to know that you need to update to the latest FBX importer to get a good n-gon import.

As long as you have the newest importer plugin, this will definitely be the best way to transfer data into Max.

as far as I can tell it works really well in max 2009, but the max9 importer might be broken.

Thank you Michael.

Hi Michael, sorry if it's a stupid question.
In this page with the new features of the FBX importer for Max:

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=11804173

one of the key one is:
Support for NURBS export and import

Does it change something in the way we pass the model between the two apps?
Or is the normal feature you use for the translation?

Regards
Luca

Hi Luca,

No, actually that particular thing does not make any difference - MoI's new FBX exporter will write polygon data to the .fbx file, not NURBS data directly.

I think most programs that read .fbx files will be expecting it to contain polygons and not NURBS surfaces.

If you want to get NURBS data into Max, I think that is already possible currently with using the IGES file format? But I think most people will want to export polygon data from MoI into Max so that you can take advantage of MoI's more advanced meshing mechanism such as creating n-gon meshes...

Hi Michael,
I imported it ok into max, xsi and, houdini
In houdini the sphere is imported with no seams, but the other objects look identical to the xsi import with disconnected edges.
As you can see below(xsi screens) there are a lot of seams in the sphere especially at the poles(blue lines depict open edges).
I exported a similar polysphere to fbx format from max, and a nurbs sphere from xsi ; both do not generate disconnected edges.( i have attached both objects )

sorry for the quality of the render..bad gif compression
