Importing 3D Data into WinCAPS III

Modified on Wed, 07 Jul 2021 at 03:36 PM

Import 3D data created by other applications and use it as an object in simulation.

The following formats are supported.

  • Directx file (*.x)
  • VRML 2.0 file (*.wrl)

WINCAPS III does not support VRML 1.0 format.
 Use VRML 2.0 (or VRML 97) format data. 


Select the parent node for adding the object.


Right-click the node. From the submenu, click Add 3DData. read 3D data window appears.


Select a file and click the OK button.
The default format is DirectX. For VRML data, switch the file type to VRML (*.wrl).
The corresponding object appears in the Arm 3D view. 

The units of the data scale may differ according  to the software on which the 3D data was created. Select the appropriate  unit and import.

Imported 3D data may display a mirror image. Enter a negative value in the Scale box to display a normal image.
