Arch DAE

From FreeCAD Documentation


The Collada (DAE) format is a standard file format for exchange of Mesh data. The BIM Workbench can import meshes from .dae files, and export BIM and other Shape-based objects to the .dae format.

Note that imported objects will be Mesh objects, and will need to be turned into Shapes or BIM objects for optimal use. The BIM Workbench has several tools to help you in performing that operation.

The Collada import functionality in the BIM workbench depends on pycollada. If it is not installed on your system, Collada import/export will be disabled.
