View Full Version : Export from Rhino
05-28-2005, 09:33 PM
I'm new to C4D, and am continually amazed by what I am learning to do. And continue to stuggle with what should be very minor issues.
One is.......can I export NURBS drawings from Rhino 3, into C4D and use them to create 3D shapes. I've tried dxf, obj and 3ds formats and nothing comes through.
Secondly, can I make an imported OBJ file from Rhino editable?
I see how to use some of the modeling tools, but Editable doesn't look accessible.
Sorry for the low ball questions, and thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I use Rhino also and you can't export Rhino NURBS into C4D. I've exported/imported from Rhino with 3DS and OBJ. editable is for parametric objects.

Thanks for confirming what I assumed was so.
Have you heard there is to be a plug-in in the Fall that will allow Rhino files to be opened directly in C4D?
I read this on the Rhino NG.
That would be very cool, if it happens.

You are right. There is a Plugin for direct import of the native Rhino Fileformat 3dm on its way. Unlike importing via obj there is no information lost, e.g. objectnames and you are still in control about the meshdensity.
The autumn-information is a bit unprecise due to translational errors. It is supposed to ship before summer but the decision about the release is also depending from economical issues.

Thank you for the information. I look forward to using this new plug-in. Will it be announced on the Maxon site? If not, where should I look to find out about its availability?
Will it allow the Rhino models to become "editable"? That would be an incredible advantage.
I'm still awstruck by the speed of my jewelry renders.
Thanks again for the tip.
yeah we arw all hoping for a dirct import from rhino....
so far the lightwave export has been working fine for me, ech nurbs surface comes with a polygon selection, and defied objets stay as objects....
