Converting to .iv

Unread postby johnsmith » Tue Mar 13, 2012 9:22 pm

So I've been doing some product design with TurboCad, which can export .vrml files. I can view that on my o2 with CosmoPlayer, but was wondering if there is a way to import it to iiview?

Not sure about vrml but there was a series of converters floating around for 3ds, Softimage, Wavefront, dxf, iges and some other formats to Inventor. They worked pretty well. Your Turbocad should be able to export in iges or dxf.

Thanks Hamei. I was looking through my Icon Catalog, under Interoperability, I think I used to have some converters there once. What disk to they live on? I tried installing from IRIX Applications CD, but couldn't find them. Damn, it's been a while since I used IRIX.

I found it eventually, for anyone who is interested. The biggest issue is that files need to have unix line endings, not Mac.
