Datakit CAD import plug-ins for Rhino update

Datakit, a leading company in CAD data exchange, has announced several improvements in its Rhino CAD import plug-ins offer: the plug-ins now import assemblies into Rhino. And a new import format is available in its plug-ins bundle.

Datakit CAD import plug-ins for Rhino are now able to maintain the assembly structure of the original model.

Indeed, the plug-ins line CrossCad/Plg, well known by Rhino users, already enabled to import numerous CAD file formats in Rhino. But it did not keep the initial assembly tree. So the latest version of these plug-ins has been improved to convert the assembly structure of imported files by using the layers tree in Rhino.

This solution enables Rhino users to keep a maximum amount of data coming from the initial design of the imported assemblies, and to easily rework these assembly by editing only the desired layers.

Datakit also announces the addition of its CATIA V6 (.3dxml) files import plug-in to its bundle of Rhino plug-ins.

This plug-in has been available for a few years, but was only sold separately. Datakit decided to integrate it into its existing bundle without additional cost, for a complete multi-CAD import solution for Rhino users.

Rhino users can obtain this package of 11 CAD files import plug-ins for an unchanged price of 1500€. If you already own this bundle with an up-to-date maintenance subscription, you can also take advantage of the additional CATIA V6 import now!
