CadImporter Plugin

The functionality described in this article is not available in the Community SDK edition.
You should upgrade to Engineering / Sim SDK edition to use it.

Out-of-the-box the Import System includes the CadImporter plugin that allows importing of CAD models.

To use the CadImporter plugin, just load it via the plugin_load console command or the following command line option on the application start-up:

Shell commands
-extern_plugin CadImporter

If you somehow change or extend the CadImporter plugin, you should recompile it before running to make the changes available.

Open CASCADE sources are required for recompiling the CadImporter plugin:

  1. Get the Open CASCADE sources.
  2. Build the Open CASCADE static libraries from the source code according to the instructions.
  3. Set the path to the compiled libraries in the OCCTROOT environment variable.
  4. Compile the plugin in one of the following ways:
    • By using the build script:
      Shell commands
      C:\UnigineSDK\source> --plugin CadImporter
    • Via Microsoft Visual Studio: go to the <UnigineSDK>\source\plugins\Import\CadImporter, open the cadimporter_vs2015.vcxproj project and build it.
