Artlantis 1.2.6 Released

Paris, France - Abvent has released Version 1.2.6 of Artlantis family. By its new integrated import plug-ins this version broadens the possibilities for collaboration and allows communication with Artlantis for users with a wide range of 3D software.
With the new DWF, OBJ and FBX import formats and the updated DXF, DWG and 3DS plug-ins, Artlantis R and Studio 1.2.6 becomes a fantastic gateway to Autodesk's products such as Autocad Architect, Revit, 3D Studio Max, VIZ, or Maya; as well as to many other softwares : Rhinoceros, Cinema 4D, Lightwave, Modo, Softimage XSI, Poser. This major enhancement of the opening formats attracts not only new users but it brings great advantage for existing users too. Artlantis is now ready to adopt the majority of the 3D objects offered on websites like ObjectsOnline or Turbo Squid, to convert them into library parts for it's own Catalog. Files saved in these 3D software are recovered with most of their elements in Artlantis : geometry, name of materials, textures, light sources and camera positions. While DWF plug-in is available only for Windows users, the rest of the import formats are compatible with both, Macintosh and Windows. The version 1.2.6 of Artlantis is accessible on for free download for all existing Artlantis R and Studio users.
