Hi Javier,

allow me to add a few technical details:

prt4cmd uses prt::InitialShapeBuilder::resolveGeometry to read the initial shape geometry. resolveGeometry in turn can only read formats which have a decoder available in PRT.

relevant decoders in PRT 1.10.4198 are:

- obj

- dae (collada)

- fbx

full list:

Best,

Simon
