Añade en el documento actual el contenido de un fichero creado con otra aplicación. Estan soportados varios formatos de archivo: .IGES, .STEP, .BREP, .STL, .OBJ, .PLY, etc.

introduced in version 0.21: If an image format is selected the command will create an Image Plane.


Cuando se carga, el fichero es incorporado al proyecto actual (que debe estar abierto). Si lo que deseas es cargar un nuevo archivo en una nueva ventana, usa el comando Std_Open.

Image Plane

An Image Plane is a planar representation of an image in the 3D view. It can for example be used when creating a model based on photographs of an existing object.

By default an Image Plane is placed on the global XY plane. The initial size of an Image Plane is calculated using a 96px/inch resolution.


  1. To edit an Image Plane do one of the following:
    • Double-click the Image Plane in the Tree view.
    • Right-click the Image Plane in the Tree view and select Change image... from the context menu.
  2. If the Image Plane is not plane-parallel to the XY, XZ or YZ plane of the global coordinate system, it is realigned to be plane-parallel to the XY plane.
  3. The Image plane settings task panel opens.
  4. Optionally select the XY-Plane, XZ-Plane or YZ-Plane of the global coordinate system.
  5. Check Reverse direction to rotate the Image Plane 180°. The rotation axis depends on the selected plane. For the XY plane it is the global X axis. For the XZ and YZ plane it is the global Z axis.
  6. The Offset, X distance and Y distance are relative to the coordinate system of the Image Plane. A small negative offset can be useful when tracing the image with a sketch or Draft geometry.
  7. Optionally change the Transparency.
  8. Image size options:
    • Scale by numerical input:
      1. Optionally uncheck Keep aspect ratio for unequal scaling.
      2. Enter a Width and/or Height.
    • Scale by picking points:
      1. Press the Calibrate button.
      2. Pick two points inside the image.
      3. A dimension line is displayed.
      4. Enter the desired dimension.
      5. Press Enter or the Apply button.
  9. Press the OK button to confirm the changes and close the task panel.

An Image Plane object is derived from an App GeoFeature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:


Image Plane

  • DatosImage File (FileIncluded): The image file used for the Image Plane. This file is stored in the .FCStd file.
  • DatosXSize (Length): The width of the Image Plane.
  • DatosYSize (Length): The height of the Image Plane.


Object Style

  • VistaLighting (Enumeration): How the Image Plane is illuminated in the 3D view. Can be Two side or One side.
