In the document I have set some settings such as extrustion etc., My requirement is to convert the sxd to 3D PDF format only. Kindly suggest me. ArcScene™ can be used to create both realistic and thematic 3D scenes, and with ArcGIS® , you can use the “Export To 3D Web Scene” geoprocessing tool. Esri, the Esri globe logo, ArcGIS, ArcScene, ArcToolbox, 3D Analyst, , Export To 3D Web Scene, to export your ArcScene documents to 3D web.

And the exportation fails as well. While this geometry is usable in Rhino, you will not be able to use functions like Make2D without first converting the mesh geometry to NURBS geometry.

A dialogue expory should open for you to select your file. The great advantage of this approach is you have vastly more control over animate, lighting, fly-throughs, texturing etc. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. If you do this, MAX will import the file rotated about the X-axis like it does in Rhino and you will have to rotate it back to horizontal again.

You need to adjust your coordinates unless you opt to use real-world coordinates. But when I try to export it, it always crashes down. More than likely, you will have to scale your mesh to the correct size if you want it to be to scale. Select the mesh geometry and use the Rotate command to rotate around the origin 0,0,0 by 90 degrees. This might be easy, but I’m a newbie in using ArcScene and I can’t figure out how to do it.


The imported surface can sometime have an elevated “lip” around the edge of the terrain which can be manually trimmed away in Rhino. ArcScene will break the terrain surface into tile sections, and you will see multiple overlapping tiles at three levels of resolution low, medium, and high.

You can solve this problem by leaving the box “Turn to 3DS Coordinates” checked when you import the file. X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc.

Sign up using Email and Password. It works when exporting a terrain model alone. How to do it then? When you import your surface, it should appear like this: Your buildings should now be horizontal.

Sign up using Facebook. What is your end goal? There are plugins that will take georeferenced rasters, DEMs and shapefiles. However, it would export the terrain reasonably efficiently. After you select your file, a new box will open up with a couple different options.

This is because ArcScene exports the VRML as one-sided and so it renders the meshes one-sided and although some mesh faces appear to be missing, the geometry is there but not rendered.

You can import all your layers into Blender, use the point-data shapefiles as particle instances to instantiate your point objects or use a raster as a particle generator to control size and density of the instantiated objects.

I can’t find the right way. All objects represented by points I would create as a VRML object in a modelling package and then inline the object to the VRML file and add instantiate it at the point locations. To export 3D objects out of ArcScene to be used in other 3D modelling applications?

If you zoom in and look closely at the 3D buildings, you will notice that the mesh is outlined around particular faces and that when you orbit around the buildings the outlined faces change. A much better alternative option is to use a ‘proper’ 3D modelling package like Blender. Probably because of the incompatibility of tiff and shapefile? I need to add to this model some 3D objects like a sphere, cube etc.

Once you’ve visualized your data in 3D using ArcScene as demonstrated in the tutorial Visualizing Data in 3Dyou can export your three-dimensional qrcscene to be imported and used in 3D CAD software. Here we demonstrate how to do this with Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. You can again toggle the pulldown for filetype and select VRML from the list. Importing in Rhinoceros 2.

X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc ArcScene is really nice for very quick demos but limited for anything beyond that. Notice that all the faces of the polygon mesh are adcscene properly and the buildings are facing the correct way in the Z-axis.
