Hi,

i want to export many cubes from 3ds max into realflow. But to export each cube is a bit exhausting. How can I solve that?

Regards

Export them all to one sd file and then use the multibody import in RF5

thanks. Much better!
After simulation, how can I get the animation back into 3ds max?

import the sd file from the objects folder in your project after simulating. back into 3ds max.

Ah, ok. Thanks.
One last thing.
I have an animation of falling cubes and imported them now with the sd file back into 3ds max.
I also have a fluid animation interacting with the cubes. I loaded that animation into 3ds max with the meshLoader. But the fluid animation is now somewhere in the 3d room and not there where it should be, by the cubes. How can I take the same coordinates from RF in 3ds max?
