Low down on parasolid support?


#1

G’day everyone,

I’ve just been given a parasolid for the first time and am surprised that rhino can’t open it. Anyone got the low down on this?

regards,
Nick.

The lowdown is that to support Parasolid import requires purchasing an expensive library/license that would increase the total cost of Rhino for the benefit of a few users. We have not been able to make a business case to do this.

Can you get a different file format that Rhino does support, such as IGES or STEP?

There are 3rd party products that you can purchase for importing this file format.
