    I have the same issue. I can't import CAD files now. There is no dropdown arrow next to the Datasmith importer

        It opens the import window. You can see available file format options below

          Hi Kubapie !

          Make sure to enable the Datasmith CAD plugin to have all the CAD formats available and restart the editor.

            Hi Antoine,

            I have all Datasmith Plugins enabled. I have even tried different combinations of enabled plugins but no luck so far. It also doesn't work when I create an emtpy archviz project. Update to 4.24.2 Also didn't help

              When you start the editor and check the Output Log, is there the following mention ?

              Code:
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithC4DImporter
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithCADImporter
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithContent
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithFBXImporter
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithGLTFImporter
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithIFCImporter
              LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin DatasmithImporter

                  Are you using a launcher build of the editor or compiling it yourself from the GitHub source ?
                  If you are using a source build, we do not ship the CAD components for licencing reasons.

                    Same here even with 4.24.2. There's the option to import fbx and datasmith files but no actual CAD files on the Mac like .STEP etc.
                    On the contrary when I bootcamp into Windows there's a lot more options and all the CAD formats are supported there.
                    When will you guys support CAD files for the MAC?

                      I must have missed the Mac part of the thread, we only support the Windows platform for CAD data.

                            Hey mrboni and Czaja91 !

                            4.25 Preview 1 doesn't have the CAD importers, we expect to have it back in preview 2 or 3.

                            Sorry for the inconvenience !

                              Windows 4.25 Preview 2 still doesn't have CAD import option.

                              Hope the datasmith works again. I was super hyped that 4.25 will gonna fix rhino compatibility but seems like I can't even import it for now.
