PARIS, April 30, 2014 -- Abvent, developer of stand-alone rendering applications designed especially for architects and designers, has announced that a new export plug-in from Rhinoceros 3D version 5 to Artlantis 5 is now available for downloading from www.artlantis.com.
Rhino 3D users can create their models in Rhino, send it to Artlantis, return to Rhino, make changes to the geometry, export a new Artlantis file and recover their previous work done in Artlantis. The Artlantis export plug-in offers a direct transfer from Rhino to Artlantis without the need for intermediate file formats. The Artlantis .atl file format is cross platform; it can be read on both Macintosh and Windows.
Artlantis is the perfect software for Rhino users, allowing them to present their projects with the well-known simplicity and quality of Artlantis. These two programs can now work together in a complementary way, helping users complete even the most ambitious project presentations.
Artlantis can recover the following from Rhino 3D models:
- Projects and linked geometry
- Smoothness of geometry
- Geolocalization and heliodon
- Cameras and focals
- Shading colors and transparency
- UV Mapped textures
- Objects and layer names
As with all other available Artlantis plug-ins, users can update a project in the modeler without losing any of the data already entered into Artlantis.
