Din3D importer for Cinema 4D

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.

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. The model was complemented C4D, this information did not lose in the upgrade. Very fast plugin.

Note: Not compatible with AC4D and AC4D+ formats.
