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>build.py --plugin CadImporter
    • Via Microsoft Visual Studio: go to the <UnigineSDK>\source\plugins\Import\CadImporter, open the cadimporter_vs2015.vcxproj project and build it.
