DAE Collada File

The primary file format that allows you to transfer digital assets such as materials, mesh geometries, and 3D scene nodes hierarchy between different 3D software applications. DAE has several advantages over other formats, such as:

  • Reusable Geometry Components: You can store and reuse geometry instances that are referenced by multiple objects in your DAE scene, saving memory and disk space.
  • Multiple Texture Images and Coordinates: You can assign different texture images and texture coordinates to each face of your DAE model, creating complex and realistic materials.
  • Color Transparency and Named Groups: You can control the opacity and color of your mesh, as well as organize your DAE objects into named groups for easy selection and manipulation.

DAE Files Conversion: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your DAE files. They utilize the OpenCOLLADA framework that supports the latest COLLADA specifications.


DWG AutoCAD Drawing

Autodesk's AutoCAD is a leading software program in the field of Computer Aided Design (CAD). It is renowned for its support of the native DWG drawing format. It has the following features:

  • DWG Format: The native file format of AutoCAD, which can store both 2D and 3D geometry data, as well as project metadata, such as layers, blocks, dimensions, etc. DWG files are compatible with many other CAD applications and can be easily shared and edited.
  • AutoCAD Add-ons: Our Automesher Application and Automapki Application are add-ons for AutoCAD that allow you to import and export 3D and GIS data from various external file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, SHP, KML, etc. These add-ons enable you to integrate geospatial data with your CAD designs and create complex 3D models from different sources.
  • ObjectARX Technology: The customization technology for AutoCAD provided by Autodesk, which we use to develop our AutoCAD add-ons. ObjectARX allows us to access and manipulate the AutoCAD objects and data, as well as the user interface and commands. ObjectARX ensures that our add-ons are fully compatible and integrated with the AutoCAD environment.
