Import from Collada (.dae)

gabriel_elkindgabriel_elkind Member, Developers Posts: 1
I seem to be unable to import .dae files, and I'm wondering whether it is possible with OnShape.

I find this page as the second google result for "onshape supported import type" which states that Collada 1.4.1 is supported. 

When I do the following: 
  • Begin a new document
  • Press the plus sign, import a document
  • Choose one of a few sample .dae files I downloaded from http://www.turbosquid.com/  (confirmed to be version 1.4.1)
  • It is not recognized as a part, I get the following screen

    @gabriel_elkind The help was a typo and it should have been in the write column.  Sorry for the confusion.
