Import 3D models and scenes from SketchUp and Autodesk 3ds Max



The Plugins for Autodesk 3D MAX and SketchUP are discontinued. Starting from version 9.1 VideoCAD has its own tools for direct import 3D models of many 3D formats.

VideoCAD has an opportunity of 3D modeling video surveillance scenes using constructions and 3D models distributed with the program.

The distribution kit of VideoCAD includes several most relevant 3D models for CCTV design. Though the standard package tends to be enough for accomplishing most of tasks, there may appear a need for library supplement.

Any 3D models and scenes which can be opened in SketchUp or Autodesk 3ds Max can be added to the VideoCAD library.

For exporting 3D models to VideoCAD the Free SketchUp version is suitable.

Lots of 3D models can be downloaded from Internet for free. You can also create models and scenes in SketchUp or Autodesk 3ds Max independently.

We offer special packages for importing 3D models into VideoCAD.

These packages contain:

  • Plugin file;
  • User Manual with step-by-step description how to insert a new 3D model into the VideoCAD library;
  • Example of ready 3D model files.

Import 3D models is supported by VideoCAD Starter II, VideoCAD Lite and VideoCAD Professional versions. It is not supported by VideoCAD Starter version.
