Vasari supports the import of ACIS objects contained in DWG, DXF, and SAT files. (ACIS objects describe solids or trimmed surfaces.) For example, you can create ACIS objects using the AutoCAD commands Draw Solids and Draw Region. You can also import SmartSolids™ from MicroStation® into Vasari. To import ACIS objects, use the procedure Import Options for CAD Formats and Vasari Models.
Vasari supports the following types of surfaces when importing ACIS objects:
- Elliptical cylinder
- Elliptical cone
- Extruded surface
- Revolved surface
- NURB surfaces
You can import NURB (non-uniform rational B-splines) surfaces on ACIS objects in DWG or SAT files into mass or generic model families while you are creating the family.
To use ACIS imports for face-based host tools, import geometry into an in-place family of category Mass or Generic Model. Face-based tools work best on ACIS solids.
