I do have 3DS Max Design, hence the fact I was able to click on Export it to 3DSMax :smileywink:

Did you try to load the .vsp3d file in 3DS Max Design, saving then as .3DS classic for Autocad..?

Ok, opened 3DS Max Design, and I cannot find a way to load the .vsp3d file.

I have no 3DS Max to simulate your scenario, however it's odd, that you can "Export to Civil View for 3ds Max Design" but this latter cannot handle the resulting file.

Maybe would you post this issue in the 3DS Autodesk forum..?

I was just trying to open the file, but you need to use the Civil View extension to import that kind of file.  Which I have now done, and works
