Default AutoCAD 2 Maya !

OK guys - here is an example of the glorious (!!!) DXF_DWG import capablity of Maya. As you may read in their website - Maya is capable of importing DXF / DWG files without any problem

Well if you were into architectural vis. as I am - Be carefull:

Maya does NOT import blockes correctly from AutoCAD and it shows only one copy of them , somewhere in its 3D space, definitely not where they should be - It doesnot even try to explode them into curves or whatever and put it where it should.

Also I Attach an image of a file (all 2D) both from AutoCAD and the resulting file in Maya.

I sent it to a friend who uses Maya 6 and he says he got the same result .

in a nutshell - SHAME !

BTW - I used AutoCAD 14 and tried both DXF and DWG...

SOLUTION:

After hours of Trial and error:

most of the layer names were too long.

I guess Maya trims the names and thus having many layers with the same name - Instead of unifying those - it just drops it !


This is poor programming (maybe lazy programming...)
