    IMPORT ANY CAD FILE

    With PiXYZ PLUGIN, import any CAD file (CATPart, Solidworks, JT, STEP…) with perfect tessellated meshes and limited polygon count.
    See formats supported in PiXYZ PLUGIN

    This is the perfect bridge for connecting the engineering & CAD worlds with the gaming world, allowing effortless integration of large 3D assemblies and creation of powerful visualization experiences.


    PREPARE YOUR ASSET

    At import, access built-in tessellation presets to define mesh quality or create your own settings according to your optimization strategy.
    Create LOD on-the-fly when tessellating your CAD model.
    Apply automatic UV projection mapping (channel 0) and auto-unwrapping (for channel 1 Lightmaps) to your new mesh.

    This is amazing!

    will it be available in the asset store also?
    does the price include updates, until how long/to next version etc?
    the plugin is for editor importing only, not runtime cad importer?

    Thanks mgear!

    Regarding you questions:
    - The plugin will be available on both PiXYZ web store and Unity asset store.
    - The perpetual license includes all new minor versions. Major versions should be released once a year.


    Best,

    Hi,
    CAD import at run-time from our plugin is now available. There is not additional cost for this feature, but each user of the final application will need a PiXYZ Plugin for Unity license to import native CAD file at run-time.

    Saw the announcement today. We have so far been using 3D Studio Max, SAP 3D Vusal Enterprise Author and Keyshot 7 for CAD translations (and one other tool I don't think we can mention, for a competing engine). All of those tools have their unique quirks and flaws, so it will be interesting to try this one as well.

    Does this new partnership with Unity change the pricing? I did not see mention of that in the announcement.

    Hi ekergraphics,
    You can contact us directly for pricing details (contact@pi.xyz). But no worries, it's quite the same.

    Hello PiXYZ,

    if i try to import an Creo-File in PiXYZ Studio the error message "CAD API failed error code (-10007)" appears.

    Unfortunatly i can not provide you information about the file because it is under nda.

    Are you able to help somehow?

    With best regards

    Hi. I downloaded the the trial version of the plugin and try to test it before purchasing it .
    Is the PiXYZ plugin only available for unity pro ?
    I followed the documentation, but Im not able to activate the license in unity.
    After I try to open the license manager window inside of unity I see this error.(see screenshot)
    I also tried some different unity versions without any success.Im working on Mac and use the latest version of the plugin and unity 2018.1.1.f1.

    Any help
