feature request

feature request:

it would be nice if you could make blender import files containing 3d solids, from Intellicad. Intellicad is used by quite a great number of architects (due to it's low cost compared to autocad).
I know you guys don't have to do it, but it's sad to have such a great 3d program as Blender3D and not being able to use it with my architectural models...
thanks

all of blenders importers and exporters are writen in python, and some of them were writen by people who dont know C, and havent coded in blenders internal code. if you have the api of the format you want to use, and want to learn python www.python.org you could probably make an importer your self. just check out all the other import scripts in the blender\.blender\scripts folder for examples of other ones.

Intelecad can save and load autocad files, and I beleive that there is an importer for that.
