interesting. Do you know how could I import a raster DEM as 3D terrain model 
into ArchiCAD?
ArchiCAD doesn't recognize VRML and I don't have 3DS (recognized format by 
AC) to convert VRML to 3DSMax
I also tried importing a shp contour vector layer (derived from the raster 
DEM), but it seems that AC don't "read" the z values (the layer is imported 
as simple plain curves)

any ideas?
