Importing STL into Maya
on Jun 29, 2005 at 8:44:21 am

I have an ASCII STL file that I wish to import into Maya.

The file imports well into Cinema 4D but I need to be able to bring it into Maya. Is there a simple solution?

A plugin or program that converts this inot a Maya STL? This is a bit of a headache. Not my area of expertise.

Thanks in advance

Perhaps you could convert it to a format like DXF which then could be imported into Maya.

Stereolithography (STL) file conversion to DXF should be possible. If you can't find a way, you might contact a rapid prototyping service bureau and see what they recommend.

Thanks for the response.

There was a simple solution. Maya allows import of STL files but you have to enable this option in the plugin manager.

Now I know. All is well

The plugin is called DirectConnect, not exactly the most intuitive name.
