Description

Plugin for Autodesk® Alias® to generate tires of various sizes for Cars and Motorcycles.

The plug-in is a convenient way to create automotive tires of various sizes by specifying industry standard notations, i.e. Witdth in MM/aspect ratio Rim diameter in INCH. By default the tire size is set to 205/65R15. The resulting Tire would have the pivot in the center of the tire, so that it can be placed accurately to the correct wheel center locations. To make the data lighter, threads are mimicked using a bump map texture.

The plug-in can also generate motorcycle tires of various sizes.

Autodesk Alias® Plugin to import 3d Points in a CSV (Comma Sperated Value) file. 

CMM (coordinate measuring machines) are used in many automotive studios, to make cross-section data of physical models. These are stored as raw x,y,z values and can be exported as a CSV file. 

Currently, there is no easy method to transfer such data into Alias. Although Alias can import CSV file as a point cloud, it is not very easy to visualize sparse data. The plug-in will import the points and connect them using polylines. By choosing an angle , the resulting polylines can be broken at the retract steps or sudden change in curvature.

Getting Started:

  • Open the Plugin Manager
  • Please select

    ImportCSV_2024_1 for Alias 2024.1 or newer
    ImportCSV_2021_3 for Alias 2021.3 to Alias 2023.1
    ImportCSV for older versions of Alias.

  • Select the Auto Load option to automatically load the plugin the next time Alias starts.
  • The plugin will be installed under File->Import menu, as Import CSV

Usage:

Click on Import CSV to import the contents of the point file into the current stage.
A Polyline is created, connecting the 3D points defined in the file.
