Abvent announces new Artlantis plug-in for Rhino 5
PARIS, April 30, 2014 -- Abvent, developer of stand-alone rendering applications designed especially for architects and designers, has announced that a new export plug-in from Rhinoceros 3D version 5 to Artlantis 5 is now available for downloading from www.artlantis.com.
Rhino 3D users can create their models in Rhino, send it to Artlantis, return to Rhino, make changes to the geometry, export a new Artlantis file and recover their previous work done in Artlantis. The Artlantis export plug-in offers a direct transfer from Rhino to Artlantis without the need for intermediate file formats. The Artlantis .atl file format is cross platform; it can be read on both Macintosh and Windows.
Artlantis is the perfect software for Rhino users, allowing them to present their projects with the well-known simplicity and quality of Artlantis. These two programs can now work together in a complementary way, helping users complete even the most ambitious project presentations.
Artlantis can recover the following from Rhino 3D models:
- Projects and linked geometry
- Smoothness of geometry
- Geolocalization and heliodon
- Cameras and focals
- Shading colors and transparency
- UV Mapped textures
- Objects and layer names
As with all other available Artlantis plug-ins, users can update a project in the modeler without losing any of the data already entered into Artlantis.
Rhinoceros (Rhino) is a stand-alone, commercial NURBS-based 3D modeling software, developed by Robert McNeel & Associates. The software is commonly used for industrial design, architecture, marine design, jewelry design, automotive design, CAD/CAM, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, product design as well as the multimedia and graphic design industries.
Artlantis is a family of stand-alone rendering applications developed especially for architects and designers by Abvent. Artlantis Render is designed for those seeking high-resolution 3D renderings, while Artlantis Studio is ideal for quickly and easily creating high-resolution 3D renderings, as well as iVisit 3D panoramas, iVisit 3D VR Objects, and animations. Artlantis interfaces directly with ArchiCAD™, Revit™, SketchUp™ Pro, Vectorworks™, and Arc+™. DWF, OBJ and FBX import formats as well as DXF, DWG and 3DS plug-ins ensure seamless interaction with all the leading CAD software. Themed collections of materials, parametric textures, and objects known as Artlantis Media enable users to simulate life-like scenes in a realistic environment. A recognized leader in preview window technology, Artlantis is the rendering software used by architects, designers and urban design professionals in more than 80 countries.

Good news for Revit 2014 users!
The export plug-in from Revit 2014 to Artlantis 4.1 is now available for downloading!
Create your model in Revit, export and edit it in Artlantis. Return to Revit, make changes to the geometry, export a new Artlantis file and recover your previous work done in Artlantis. The Artlantis export plug-in offers a direct transfer from Revit into Artlantis, without the need for intermediate file formats. During the export, special entities are automatically exploded. The Artlantis .atl file format is cross platform; it can be read on both Macintosh and Windows.
Let’s see in detail what Artlantis can recover from your Revit model:
• The geometry
• All cameras for parallel views
• All cameras for perspective views
• The shading color and transparency of materials with their names
• The geographical position of the sun active for the parallel view that is used for the export.
