We are pleased to announce the availability of new version 17.11 of Aspose.3D for .NET API. The new version 17.11 of the API has been released with the support of importing PDMS RVM files and developers can export these RVM files to the supported file formats. Developers can merge all Meshes of the Scene, a Node and a set of nodes as well as get or set the transparency of the PBR material (only supported for GLTF). We have fixed a defect of exporting incorrect material opacity in GLTF.

Import RVM file into Aspose.3D API

With the help of Aspose.3D for .NET API, developers can convert RVM file to all supported formats. The RVM file stores 3D power plant project. Developers can import RVM models into the Aspose.3D for .NET API with the constructor or Open member of the Scene class as narrated in this help topic: Import a 3D model and Use RVM load options

Merge all Meshes into a Single Mesh

With the recent version 17.11 of Aspose.3D for .NET API, developers can merge Meshes to a single transformed Mesh. In order to achieve this, three MergeMesh members are added to the PolygonModifier class. Please refer to the code example as documented in this help topic: Merge Meshes in 3D file

Developers can also control the transparency of PBR material. Aspose.3D for .NET API supports PBR material for only GLTF 2.0, so this improvement will affect the GLTF 2.0 export. This is the code example:

// initialize a 3D scene
Scene scene = new Scene();
// add PBR material with transparency factor
scene.RootNode.CreateChildNode("box", new Box()).Material = new PbrMaterial()
                  {Transparency = 0.5, Albedo = new Vector3(Color.AliceBlue)};
// save 3D scene
scene.Save("box.gltf", FileFormat.GLTF2);
