I just installed Archicad goodies for Archicad 26 to use the 3D Studio In addon, but when i go to "Interoperability" the 3D studio in option isnt there.

It's likely that either (a) you customized your work environment prior to Goodies installation so that it isn't showing where it wants to be in the menu structure, (b) you installed an update to AC 26 after the initial installation and need to re-install it to update the 3D Studio In add-on so that it is recognized , or c) there is some incompatibility (that I cannot imagine) with the EDU version.

 

Go to Options > Add-On Manager and verify that you see 3DStudio is listed and with a checkmark. When you click on it, what do you see in the "Add-on Info" panel - where in my screenshot it shows where it is in the menu structure (and it is indeed there)?

 

Was Archicad running when you installed it?  If so, that could be the issue.  Quit AC, relaunch and see if it is there?  If still no, Quit, re-install Goodies, then relaunch...?

There is a know problem where the goodies do not show in menus if you install them after previously running Archicad.

Easiest way to fix is to re-install (repair) Archicad 26.

Do not run it.

Install the goodies.

Install the latest hotfix (update).

Now run Archicad and all should be fine.

Hello, had same issue, after looking on Options/Addon Manager, I observed the 3d studio in addon was installed, also noticed it showed the path to activate the palette Desing/Desing Extras/3dstudio and that solved the problem for me, i have no idea on why it won't show in the file menu, but this works.

 

Regards

If the menu path is different to what you are expecting, maybe you have installed the goodies for a different language version?

Or you are using a custom (non-standard) Work Environment?
