We've used Rhino for this kind of thing too, its by no means perfect but
way better than Houdini.
You do need to get the settings right when you re-export from Rhino if
you then want it to work in Houdini, I have them around somewhere if you
need them.

Thanks Moritz.

Not too late at all ( as we are trying to get this process smoothed out
not only for our current project ...... but for similar work coming down
the line).

Unfortunately (as it applies to Rhino), we're all Linux here ( and Mac).
But we do have access to some colleagues working primarily on windows.
If Rhino considerably streamlines the process it will definitely be
worth looking into further.

Thanks again for the suggestion.

Larry
