Artlantis combines the most advanced and efficient functions for realistic simulation of hardware and lighting needed for any 3D project. Communicating directly with leading CAD architecture software (such as ArchiCAD™, VectorWorks™, SketchUp™ Pro, and Arc+™), Artlantis has the advantage of import functions for the main CAD formats.
Main Exchange File Formats
Artlantis imports the most commonly used 3D formats: DXF, DWG, DWF, OBJ, FBX or 3DS. It is worth noting that, for 3DS format files, Artlantis recovers certain data such as map textures and lights.
Use Reference File
The “Use reference file” function enables the user to make updates to a project in the modeler without losing any of the data already entered into Artlantis, regardless of the exchange format used.
ArchiCAD, VectorWorks and SketchUp, the major Artlantis partners in the CAD architecture world, export directly to the Artlantis format. This direct link provides more complete and better quality data recovery than by going through a classic exchange format.
