3DM Export for Bricscad is a RhinocerosÃ??Ã?Â® 3DM file export plug-in for BricscadÃ??Ã?Â®. This plug-in gives Bricscad the ability to export geometric data from 3DM files.
3DM Export for Bricscad reads points, curves and mesh objects in the active drawing and exports them to corresponding point, curve and mesh objects in a 3DM file.
3DM Export for Bricscad is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the Bricscad environment. There are simple instructions for this in the ReadMe file. Once loaded it adds new commands to Bricscad's existing commands and a new submenu called "3DMExport" to the Bricscad menu containing these newly added commands.
The '3DMExport' menu consists of the following commands:
# 3DMExport - Exports a 3DM file
# 3DMExportHelp - Displays the 3DM Export for Bricscad help file
# 3DMExportRegister - Registers your copy of 3DM Export for Bricscad
# 3DMExportAbout - Displays the 3DM Export for Bricscad About box
The 3DM File Format
The 3DM (3D Model) file format is the native file format of Rhinoceros, the NURBS modeling software from Robert McNeel & Associates. The OpenNURBS Initiative was founded by Robert McNeel & Associates in January 2000, with the sole purpose of providing CAD, CAM, CAE and computer graphics software users reliable methods for transferring 3D geometry between applications via the 3DM file format. TerrainCAD, our terrain generation, editing and modeling software, also uses the 3DM file format as its native file format.
