  1. I have a model comprised of a number of seperate meshes - all watertight and existing on seperate layers. The meshes are exported to the .obj format out of Rhino 3d. When I import that object file everything comes in on one layer. These are the settings used to export the model and what's set for importing it to 3dc. What am I missing?? help.

    Multiple objects merged on import

    Thanks but no, that doesn't help.

    Alter mouse defaults RMB /LMB

    Thanks Carlos! I might suggest a link to this be included in the prefs window.

    Alter mouse defaults RMB /LMB

    I'm accustomed to orbiting objects using the RMB. I have this set up in Autocad, Fusion, SKP, and Rhino. I keep getting stalled trying to navigate 3dc. Is there a way to customize this function? I can't find anything in the prefs to do so.

    Digman, I really appreciate the extensive help you offered. That's the the kind of specific eductaion that's so valuable. I'm very ignorant at this point of many concepts needed to proceed effectivly. For instance, I don't really know what welding vertices signifies, or import as child for that matter. I went back to the Rhino export dialogue and found the weld vertices option - that helps - but I don't really understand the left side of the options box presented. AbnRanger - thanks for the link - I was actually watching that collection of vids when I finally gave up and went to the forum!

    Whenever i try to import and work on a simple construction of walls i end up with incomprehensible problems. I need some fundamental understanding of the 3d system and I'm wondering if any could point me in the right direction. At this point I'm getting the same feeling i had when i tried to make use of Zbrush - (not good) In these 3 SSs you can see the mesh that's opened, it's wirerframe and what happens when I try to increase the resolution - the corners disappear! The same thing happens in the voxel space but not as bad - the edges all become very rounded and uneven. This model was exported from Rhino and I'm trying to add stone work to all the sides.

    Sure! GWL_Scaled.obj GWL_Scaled.3dm

    Thanks for the response. The geometry is closed - that is the objects created in Rhino are water tight. I'll try the weld vertices option if I can find it. Actually, I don't see that option when I try to open or import. I get this the last time:

    How to

    I hate to have to ask, but I can't find any instruction on how to actually install .3dcpacks Are they supposed to dropped over the active program? When I drop on the application icon inside the folder, the .cdpack file just copies into the folder at the first level.

    Introduce yourself!

    Hello. I found 3dCoat while looking to solve a problem that couldn't be with Rhino for Mac. I'm a hack for the most part - learn just enough to get what I need out of an application and then forget later how it was done. These days the interface conventions are becoming more and more disparete. It seems there should be a greater number of conventions adhered to in the progamming world, but even adobe makes different apps behave differently for instand with a scroll wheel - PS zooms, AI scrolls. Command+C no longer copies in PS but brings up a color menu - F3 is copy. WTF?
