Opening inventor files in maya

I just installed maya (Student version) to start modeling but because i wanted to try something quick i decided to make a 3D model in inventor and tryed to import that into maya. but i get an error that says 

 

// Error: line 0: Error reading file.

 

is this not possible or do i have to install a plugin or add-on for maya or inventor.

Hi,

 

did you specify "INVENTOR_ATF" in the import option box?

For that to work (to show up in the list) you need to load "ATFPlugin.mll"

INVENTOR_ATF is not shown in the import list.

Hi @Anonymous

 

When you get a chance, can you please zip and attach the scene file here or via dropbox/google drive or another file sharing program so I can take a look at it?

I am also having an issue importing .IPT files from Inventor.  I have the ATFPlugin.bundle loaded but I don't have an option for Inventor files.  On a Mac using 2018 Maya.
