    Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that we’ve started work on supporting more file formats. We won’t be able to address all of them at the same time. Our initial new formats we’re looking to support will be:

    .fbx
    .step
    .iges
    .stl

    When these are available on prerelease I will post an update here with an invitation for you to come try it out! Thank you for the feedback!

        It would be fantastic to support NURB geometry from CAD applications, such as Fusion 360

        Live link to software like CATIA / Solidworks / Rhino / Fusion 360 would be super helpful. Being able to do quick edits to CAD without having to re-import has been one of the greatest time savers of keyshot.

        I would love to see Solidworks part and assembly support as well as step and stl

        I may agree with Step files, but I'm less sure for STL...
        Stl is fine for 3D printing, but for Rendering there is no information either for normals nor textures...

        You can export to OBJ and import... could have more file type support though.

        .step and .stl are pretty common and would open up huge libraries of available cad models.
