Hi all.

Can Shapeshop import other file formats? If not, will this be a feature in the future?

thx

Most of the operations in shapeshop (blending, cutting, etc) cannot be directly applied to meshes, NURBS, or subD. Those formats have to be converted into something shapeshop can work with, and the conversion process will lose detail. So I haven't tried to do it, and won't be trying any time in the near future. Sorry.

If you want to do that kind of modeling on meshes, take a look at meshmixer
