Power Translators for MayaMac Edition is a new data translation product which translates STEP, IGES, ACIS SAT, and Rhino files directly into Autodesk Maya or Autodesk Studio Tools for rendering and animation. This product translates the native NURBS surface and solids data into Maya or Autodesk Studio Tools in a precise NURBS representation, avoiding the loss of accuracy which normally results from translating the polygonal representation.
Power Translators for Maya give you the power to import IGES, STEP, SAT, Rhino models directly into Maya. Forget the Poly translated mesh importers of the past. nPower's advanced Maya Geometry pipeline supports the original CAD model's precision NURBS-based surface and solids geometry and topology allowing you to re-tessellate your mesh to whatever resolution you want on the fly. Power Translators for Maya is better than the existing importers to Maya, allowing you to import larger models, with the surfaces sewn together when imported (instead of having multiple separate surfaces).
Improved Translation Speed - Tired of waiting for large CAD models to import into Maya? Maya Power Translators next generation geometry data conversion is specially designed to expedite the import processes of large CAD Models.
Resolution Independent Mesh – Maya Power Translator’s Imported NURBS objects are procedural allowing you the freedom to increase or decrease the Veiwport Mesh or Render Mesh polygon count as needed.
Precise nPower NURBS representation - Maya Power Translators imports precise geometric NURBS data for trimmed surfaces, solids models and assemblies from IGES, STEP, SAT, and Rhino formats.
Improved Memory Management - Running out of memory when importing complex CAD models? Maya Power Translators intelligent assembly and part instancing technology drastically reduce memory overhead of complex CAD data sets.
NURBS Surface Edge Welding - Tired of dealing with a NURBS model made up of hundreds or even thousands of individual NURBS surfaces? Maya Power Translators automatically detects adjoining NURBS surfaces and welds/sews them during the translation process producing single multi-surface crack free models with lower polygon counts.
Power Translators for Maya significantly reduces the time it takes to import large models and assemblies into Maya. What used to take days or weeks can now be accomplished in a matter of hours. Working with large models and assemblies inside of Maya can be significantly faster if you have a dual core and/or multi-processor box. Because sometimes the native CAD data needs a little or even a lot of help.
