I/O support for CAD model and FBX

The paraview supports *.stl, *.obj fileformat. Is there some plugin can import CAD model, such as CATIA, PROE, SolidWorks file or Standard format like IGES, STEP? And is there some plugin can read FBX file?

The main issue is that we need to rely on external tools to read these formats:

  • a BRep to mesh tesselator for the CAD formats (e.g. OpenCASCADE for IGES/STEP)
  • Autodesk FBX SDK for FBX format

It looks that there are some plugins available on github but none are maintained by Kitware.
You can also use external software like FreeCAD to read CAD formats and export VTK files.
