I have a complex model of a ship I have produced in Framework. The file is .r3i format,
Is it possible for me to import this into Robot so I can use this software package for the remainder of my project?
If not, what would be the best option for transferring my data and recompiling the model?
many thanks in advance
Error message: selected file is a file of Robot V6 program that works under DOS.
To open this file in system conversion to the new code page is necessary
How do I fix this?
Also, if starting from scratch again for my ship analysis with Robot, which 'new project' option would be best?
quite a complex 3d model, 2000+ members.
The opening of old Robot V6 files is done in two steps. First the file is automatically converted into str format. Then you open this str file (select *.str mask in Robot's open dialog). Mind that the working language of Robot should be the same as the language of the text file you want to open.

Waht is \ what do you mean by framework?
What is .r3i format? Binary or text ?
I think you should use API to import model.
framework is a free analysis package. I am using the 3d element at the moment. The output saves as .r3i format.
I'm unsure if it is ninary or text...i'm assuming binary.
What is API?
basically I have a large spreadsheet of data on approximately 20 different oak member types all from a historical ship which I have surveyed and modelled in detail.
I want to transfer my timber member data into Robot as easily as possible.
My nodes are already in place with x,y,z data. I now want to import my members and construct the ship.
How can I do this easily?
To make sure I understand the situation correctly:
1. It is not Robot V6 file
2. The format is not directly supported by Robot
What are the other formats you can save the model in the program you used for modeling? Is it the same issue as here http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Robot-Struc
