The new version adds many enhancements to the plugin which enables the user to import native SolidWorks parts and assemblies (*.sldprt and *.sldasm) to 3D Studio Max, those enhancements include:
- Adding support for 3DS Max 2011: Version 1.1 of the plugin supports 3DS Max (2009, 2010 and 2011) (32 and 64 bit)
- Optimizing the memory usage: Version 1.1 is now capable of handling larger and more complex SolidWorks models
- Remembering last import directory: The user does not need to select the full path to open her/his SolidWorks files
- Optional Scaling: The user can set an optional scale factor to automatically scale imported SolidWorsk files
Note: this is a free upgrade for all users of the previous version of the plugin.
