AGi32 - Overview - Import/Export & Output
   1  2  3       

AGi32 can import 2D or 3D files created in CAD programs that are in DWG or DXF format (from 2004–2013). With the release of version 2.1, AGi32 uses Autodesk’s RealDWG® technology enabling the tightest integration with the DWG format ever enjoyed by AGi32.

Import 2D CAD

For all but the simplest lighting applications it is convenient to work within a frame of reference provided by a CAD created background. Importing 2-D content is the norm for exterior site and roadway lighting as well as commercial spaces where it is desirable to model numerous interior spaces in one job file.

AGi32 provides excellent control over the import process allowing only the portion of the file that is of interest to be imported. A sizable and navigable viewer is provided for layer selection and verification of content.

AGi32 provides control over units, scaling, layer selection, grouping, flattening and block exploding. XREF’s will be imported if present and most entity types are imported.

Import 3D CAD

Leverage models created in other applications by importing three-dimensional content in DWG or DXF format (through 2010). AGi32 will recognize most 3-D entity types and translate them into Objects with properties selected at the time of import.

Import maps can be created to assign appropriate surface types (such as Daylight Transition Glass), colors, reflectances and textures. The end result is your 3D model is ready to work with immediately within AGi32.

If necessary, the import process can automatically scan the incoming file for duplicate surfaces and surface normal orientation. It then makes the appropriate modifications to eliminate the need for manual changes by the designer.
