PiXYZ STUDIO can import a wide range of CAD file formats from industry-leading solutions and standards (CATIA, NX, SolidWorks, Alias, STEP, IGES...), and tessellated/mesh file formats (FBX, OBJ, JT…).

Additionally, PiXYZ STUDIO can also export tessellated/mesh file formats (FBX, glTF, USD…).


The following 3D file formats are supported:

(1) Requires Autodesk Alias to be installed (with a valid license) on the same computer on which PiXYZ STUDIO (or PiXYZ BATCH) is running.

(2) Available only for PiXYZ STUDIO.batch or PiXYZ BATCH. Requires Autodesk VRED to be installed (with a valid license) on the same computer on which PiXYZ STUDIO.batch / PiXYZ BATCH is running.

(3) Only geometries for the moment (no variants, animation, etc).

(4) BRep import (currently under Dev/beta) is available through the "Alternative Importer" option.

(5) Point Clouds can only be visualized and used as reference in PiXYZ STUDIO: no optimization algorithms available for now. Coming soon!


NOTE                The "Alternative Importer" parameter gives the possibility to import some formats using a different importer, if the default one does not give satisfaction. More information in the Preferences topic.
