KEmax compatible?

Is there a Fusion 360 or SolidWorks file that can replace 3ds Max as input to KEmax? Or is KEmax an acceptable add-in to either program?

I want to use my original models designed in Fusion or SolidWorks to get its RF counterpart.

I am unfamiliar with the two program you listed but if the program can export .fbx files it should work for generating files for realflight

Thanks legoman.

The video above describes the process.


I'm going to try a basic design similar to Scott Nichols as shown on

BTW Fusion 360 is a FREEBIE to students & hobbyists.

I should have included this in the first post but KEmax is obsolete. and is replaced as a transfer medium between 3ds max and realflight by the generic .fbx. I doubt KEMAX will go in to those two programs

Thanks again legoman.

I should've picked that up, fbx is listed in the Simulation->Import pop up.

I got distracted because this thread looked like it get canned by the moderator yesterday. It was pure luck I checked today.

I'm planning on trying to develop the Tower Hobbies UpRoar a simple plane that I fly and should be a alternative to Scott Nichols RealFlightBoxTrainer. Stay tuned, keep me straight and don't hesitate to make suggestions.
