Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

Imported objects don't appear in shaded mode

I'm having a problem with some geometry imported from 3dmax into maya. The 3dmax project was exported as a FXB file and opened in maya.

The imported geometry appears if the scene is rendered, but it doesn't appear as a shaded model in the viewport. Any idea why that happens?

There's a sample scene attached here. It has some imported geometry and a sphere created in maya. The sphere appears in the shaded mode, the imported geometry doesn't.

There is a shader assingned to the object. If I render the scene, the objects appear shaded. My problem is viewing them shaded in the viewport.

something has gone wrong somewhere with the original export i think. I can't do anything with the geometry it appears to have no faces or edges or vertex which should not be possible. Try reexporting or just rebuild it.

Maybe some one else will be of more help
Good luck
