1. Export a Collada .DAE file
1.1: Export your Vectorworks model to a Collada (.DAE) file:
File -> Export -> Export COLLADA (3D only)...
1.2: Select these options in the export options window:
1.3: Import the. .DAE file in Lumion.
2. Tips & Troubleshooting
2.1: Why can't you see the model after importing and placing it in your Scene?
- The Insertion Point for the Imported Model in Lumion corresponds to 0,0,0 in Vectorworks.
- If a model is far away from the Insertion Point in Lumion, you need to move the model closer to 0,0,0 in Vectorworks, before exporting it to Lumion.
2.2: Why can't you assign a Lumion material to individual surfaces?
- Lumion will always combine surfaces that use the same material in Vectorworks. If you want to assign a Lumion material to a specific surface, you must assign a unique material to that surface in Vectorworks before importing the model.
