Plugin releases

Hi,
In this week i released the plugins new version.

The most important thing is the exporter format is changed. I implement a new feature (Separate by elements), that was why I needed it.

So you need update the importer plugin if you use the exporter. The full change-log is available here. They contains lot of bugfixes, and many improvements, so i recommend to use it.

And one more thing. In Cinema 4D R21 the plugin licensing was changed, because C4D licensing was changed.

Regards

Dinnye

Welcome to Din3D.org

This site has been created as the successor to din3d.net and dinnye.neobase.hu site. Our aim is to assist architects, interior decorators, designers who are modeling with ArchiCAD program, however would like to use other professional visualization programs for model presentations.


Din3D-icon

Din3D file format (the successor of AC4D+) is such that provides a lot of opportunities for exporting 3D models from ArchiCAD. The objective of the development of this file format was that it could, as much as possible, provide the visualization programs with the information of the structure and hierarchy of ArchiCAD beside the 3D model.

Din3D exporter for ArchiCAD

If you use ArchiCAD and would like to render in a professional visualization program. Use Din3D format for exporting ArchiCAD model and the similar ArchiCAD model structure is available for you in the rendering programs.

Din3D importer for 3ds Max

Din3D files are quickly and simply imported in AUTODESK 3ds Max. Significantly cleanses the geometry of the model thereby reducing the time spent to repair your model. Replacement of model also possible while all the settings remain unchanged.

Din3D importer for C4D

Din3D files are quickly and simply imported in MAXON Cinema 4D. There is a direct link to ArchiCAD. Replacement of changed model is also possible while all the material settings and other changes remain.

Din3D exporter for ArchiCAD

If you use ArchiCAD and would like to render in a professional visualization program. Use Din3D format for exporting ArchiCAD model and the similar ArchiCAD model structure is available for you in the rendering programs. With the help of the exporter you can further edit the ArchiCAD model anytime in Cinema 4D and 3ds Max. The planning process can be continued in ArchiCAD. If the model has changed a few clicks and the update is possible within the model visualisation programs while all previous settings remain unchanged. (Material definitions, light settings, etc..) Note: Not compatible with AC4D and AC4D+ formats.

Din3D importer for 3ds max

Din3D files quickly and simply imported in AUTODESK 3ds Max. It is suggested for those ArchiCAD users who use 3ds max for the model visualisation. It Significantly cleanses the geometry of the model there by reducing the time spent to repair your model. Replacement of model is also possible while all the settings remain the same.

The objective of the development of this file format was that it could, as much as possible, provide the visualization programs with the information of the structure and hierarchy of ArchiCAD beside the 3D model. There is possibility to transfer much more information than with the simple 3ds file format.

Significant speed acceleration in 1.5 version

Features

Selective importing The following ArchiCAD’s content can be imported:
  • 3D model
  • Lights
  • Cameras
  • Materials
  • Textures
Usage of different filter levels You would like to see again the 3D model in a meaningful structure. There is no obstacle to it. You can use these filters, either individually or in combination.

  • Classes (wall, ceiling, etc….)
  • Layers
  • Elements
  • Materials
  • In addition, it is possible to import ArchiCAD objects as single objects.

  • Welding vertices
  • Automatic edge calculation
  • Remove Double Faces
  • Reduce Multiple Edges
  • Remove Coplanar Faces (in windows)
  • Remove Zero Area Faces
  • Fix normals after smooth
  • Significantly reduces the number of Open Edges
