    Import curves to unreal

    Hi,

    Anyone managed to figure out how to bring curves from rhino or blender to unreal engine as splines? I've seen some "hack" tutorial on YT about how to get splines from 3ds max but I'm not using max and I don't know if there is another way to import curves/splines

    Does DataSmith support it? It's a plugin in UE which is for transferring content from external programs to Unreal, and there's a few doc pages about it.

      I actually just tried datasmith, super nice it can do cad meshes but I wasn't able to import curves sadly. I wasn't able to Google find anything on the topic either. I don't get it, I would expect it would be pretty important feature since unreal doesn't have cad like tools for splines.

          Or maybe some conversion method could work, going from mesh to splines. But then again I don't know how it would work with tangents.

            Hi UElaci I just wrote a plugin that imports blender Splines/Curves if you still need it.

              That'd be very useful if you can share it!

                yes, i would be inerested in this also, pls share! this Nurbs marketplace pack appears to only allow creation and modification of nurbs within UE4, but not importing them: thttps://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/en-US/product/procedural-nurbs-curves-and-surfaces

                  For splines from max to unreal, here is a script "hack" from Epic, but its not a standard feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0CeLsI-sr8
                  may we dream of UE5 supporting Nurbs, T-Splines, sub-D ?
