Maxon Computer has released the second generation of the . The plugin offers seamless file transfer from VectorWorks to Maxon's CINEMA 4D as well as options of making changes made to the original CAD project and updating the scene in CINEMA 4D--even if lighting, animation and texturing were already underway in the latter. The new version enables symbols and individual objects to be exported in classes, with symbols imported as CINEMA 4D instances for increased flexibility and a better structure for the architect to visualize his project. It also can replace hundreds of standard VectorWorks materials with sophisticated CINEMA 4D materials with just a mouseclick using a reference file. The eXchange plugin requires VectorWorks 10 or greater and CINEMA 4D R8.5.
