    When I bring my models into Dim3 Inspire they just turn into a bunch of dots and a small plane. What's that all about? Thanks,

    I haven't used it, but I seem to remember someone saying that Dim3 Inspire uses integers rather than floating point, so you have to scale everything way up before importing.

    Dim3 Inspire was in large part made with the Dim3 game engine in mind, so I wouldn't be too surprised if it's not fantastically compatible.

    The Dim3 engine is a very well-featured open source game engine... but it definitely has limitations that would never even arise in unity. Sometimes the price is worth it. I definitely feel that it is in this case.

    Inspire is agonizing to use, but does work. Hopefully in the next month or two we'll be able to import animated models from Blender...which is much easier for rigging/posing/animating models.
