    Hello Rajeev,

    This plug-in is not supported for the Autodesk Alias AutoStudio 2023.0 version. Any update or suggestion .Thanks 

    Rajeev Nair (Publisher) | October 18, 2022

    The plugin is already certified for Alias 2023. Please ensure the pre-requisites are met and the latest version of the plugin is installed. If the plugin is still not working, please email me the details of the problem.

    The exported Blender file is empty ( 0 Byte in file size) - I use Alias 22 - Any ideas why?

    Hi Robert, Please read the reply to the previous question from Karl.

  • "File is not supported in file (...)"

    Dear all, 


    Thank you giving us the chance to get an export from alias to blender. 

    Unfortunately, I face a problem : while I am importing the file I exported through the plug-in, Blender does not open it. It clearly says : 

    "File is not supported in file (...)"

    Can you help me regarding this problem? 

    And my second question is : can we export SUBD & recover the polygonal construction in blender through the export? 

    Thank you in advance for your support. 

    I stay at your disposal for any further questions, 

    Best regards,

    Hi, 1, Please read the pre-requites for the plugin to work correctly in the Installation/Uninstallation section. "Please note that the blender executable directory should be added to the environment variable PATH. If you are using Blender from Microsoft Store, it should already be set. If in doubt, try to run blender from a command prompt." The plugin relies on Blender being installed on the same machine. Since Blender can be installed/run in many different ways, it is currently not possible to ascertain the location of Blender install automatically. 2, As of current version of Alias, the subD functionalities are not exposed by the API. Some of the new SubD functionality (v 2023 ..with regards to creases) are specific to Alias and cannot be transffered to other systems. In future, if and when the functionality is exposed we will try to implement those. Hope it helps.

    This should really be a standard tool set included with Autodesk Alias

  • Thank you !

    Awesome plugin and thank you for sharing with all of us!
    Suggestion-  with the option of saving mesh data, Symmetry and curves. It would be nice to have option to export merge surfaces by shader.

    An amazing tool which cuts hours off the workflow, absolutely recommend.

    A small note, if your Alias layers have a comma in the name the tool will not work. In the current version (2.6.2), the Blender file comes out empty in this case. Just remove the commas and you're good to go.

    Hello Bruno, Thanks for reporting the bug. The bug has been resolved in the new version. Please download the latest version.( v 2.6.3)

  • Great add-on
    C Chilcott | July 19, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you Rajeev what a fantastic tool as a professional deisgner you have cut countless minutes off the time it takes to prep a model for export to Blender from Alias secodn to that the mesh prep will make a world of difference when applying textures. Great product and a great support when i had install issues.

  • Thanks a lot!
    James Cruz Garcia | May 14, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    What a wonderful addition to my workflow-
    Big Thanks from me as well!
    Edit: After testing it for a while now, I realized that there is a few things still missing, and they would make it much more usable.
    Support of AliasMeshes- Alias MeshData doesnt seem to be exported
    Export of Symmetry as an option
    Export Curves as an option
    besides that it is a great help and I really love it !

  • Thanks for sharing!
    Rainer Seitner | March 22, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful and straight foreward way to get your Alias-Data as meshes into Blender.
    Big Thanks to the developer for sharing this tool in the spirit of Blender - for free!
