by transformation work I mean transfer my (.XT/.IGS/.STEP etc.) file that I created in SOLIDWORKS to a REALFLIGHT 8 airplane file.
1) Defining pivot points and structural linkages for all the parts in the model.
2) Defining the physics which tells RealFlight how the aircraft should fly.

As far as step 1), the student version 3ds max (any version) can be used.
Step 2) is done in RF

I know the steps, but I don't have the skills and time. I need it done fast, I'll pay for the work.
