This article describes how to export Rhino projects to Revizto 5.
You can export models from a Rhino project to Revizto.
Before you export Rhino projects to Revizto, ensure that the following conditions are met:
Your computer meets the requirements for exporting projects.
Both Rhino and Revizto are installed on your computer.
You have the required access rights in the destination Revizto project.
The required set of access rights depends on your goals. Consult the following table.
Right Description Append 3D
Export new 3D models and new versions of the 3D models that you exported earlier.
This does not grant the right to export new versions of 3D models that were previously exported by other Revizto users.
Edit 3D Export all 3D models, including new versions of the 3D models that were previously exported by other Revizto users. Assign custom object properties This right is required to set model coordinates in Revizto when you export a 3D model for the first time.
You can export a model with its viewpoints from a Rhino project to Revizto.
When you export models from a Rhino project to Revizto, the following rules apply:
- You can export one of the following: the objects included in the specified view or the objects included in the current selection.
- When you re-export a Rhino project, the destination scene is completely overwritten. If some models are missing from the Rhino project, they will be deleted from Revizto after the export.
When you export models from a Rhino project to Revizto, the following limitation applies:
- Shaded views are not exported; only rendered views are exported.
These options apply when you export Rhino projects to Revizto.
Select the view to be exported.
Only the elements that are visible in the view will be exported to Revizto.
If you want to export Rhino views to Revizto viewpoints, select this checkbox.
Select the curve triangulation quality.
Better quality provides more polygons, which increases the export time and the destination model size.
Exporting Rhino projects
To export a Rhino project to Revizto:
In Rhino, open the source project and then select a view.
At the right part of the window, click the panel menu button and select the Revizto 5 checkbox.
This adds the Revizto 5 tab to the right part of the window.
On the Revizto 5 tab, click Export to Revizto 5.
If your Rhino project is not linked to a Revizto project, you will proceed to the Link to Revizto project dialog.
To link the model to an existing project, click Link to existing project, click OK, select a project, and click OK.
To create a project and link the model to it, click Create New Project, click OK, enter the project name, and click OK.
If it is the first time you export to this Revizto project and the Revizto project already has a 3D model, select the destination scene and click OK.
Add as a new model. Export the Rhino model to a new scene.
Update an existing model. Overwrite an existing scene.
Specify the export options.
If you want to change the destination Revizto project, click Change.
You will proceed to the Link Settings dialog. See step 4 of this procedure.
If there is an asterisk next to the Export Options title, some of the settings that are stored in a configuration file and affect the export have non-default values. Move the pointer over the asterisk to review the changed settings.
If any objects in the model are selected, specify whether you want to export the current selection or the entire view.
Wait until the export is completed.
This might take several minutes.
To troubleshoot your export of Rhino projects to Revizto, see the following sections:
Starting the export
A: Ensure that the following conditions are met:
- You are using a supported Rhino version.
- Revizto is installed on your computer.
If both conditions are met, at the top of the window, in the command prompt, enter ReviztoExport5.
If this does not help, the Rhino plug-in that was installed with Revizto is missing or corrupted. To restore the plug-in, close Rhino and reinstall Revizto.
Q: When I export a project from Rhino to Revizto, I get the "Current project is locked by one of Revizto apps. Please make sure no other app is working with this project at the moment." error.
A: Another application is writing data to a Revizto project. This might be manual or scheduled export from another authoring tool, or synchronization with a cloud. Wait until the operation is completed or cancel it.
A: This can have the following reasons:
- The first version of the model was exported by another project member, and you do not have enough rights to overwrite it.
- The model was exported from another authoring tool. It can be overwritten only from that authoring tool.
Please consult the project owner on the correct method of updating the model.
Q: I cannot find an exported model in Revizto.
A: Do the following:
- In the Revizto application, open the object tree.
- In the object tree, right-click the model and click Focus on objects.
- If you still cannot find the model, in the object tree, right-click the model and click Isolate.
Note. You can undo the isolation by clicking Undo at the bottom toolbar.
Q: After the export from Rhino, some parts of a model are not displayed in Revizto.
A: This can have the following reasons:
The view that you selected in the export settings does not include the model parts.
Select a view that includes the models parts, and then re-export the model.
During the export, you had some model parts selected. As a result, only the selected parts were exported.
Clear the selection in Rhino, and then re-export the model.
The camera visibility distance in Revizto is short. The model parts were exported but you cannot see them from that distance.
In the Revizto application, do one of the following:
Move closer to see the missing parts.
In Preferences > Camera, increase the camera visibility distance.
To optimize model rendering, Revizto draws only one side of each polygon. You do not see the polygons because their surfaces that face your point of view are not displayed.
