    Maya model/exporting textures to Solidworks e-Drawings

    Robert Patton

      For a project, I have a model of an ab machine prototype originally created from autocad in .stl format
      (viewable in e-Drawings).

       

      The job is to create textures and render the model. I converted the model from .stl (autocad) to polygons in
      Maya 2012

       

       

      I now have a completed a polygon model with texturing and shaders rendered with Mental Ray in Maya
      However, the client is asking me to convert the file again with textures/shaders so that it can be viewable
      on his iphone using e-Drawings (iphone app)

      I attempted to export the file from Maya in .dxf format into e-Drawings on my desktop.

       

      *The file is not showing the textures/shaders in e-Drawings and is only showing wire frame and or gray
      shaded mode.

       

       

      *Is it possible to transfer the texture/shaders from Maya to e-Drawings so that the textures are

      visible on the model?

       

       

       

      Thanks in advance
