AI import units broken?

bug

(Dan Taylor) #1

When importing a drawing from illustrator, I am having trouble getting the drawing scale in Rhino correctly.

My AI document is set to mm and so is my Rhino file. When I import I check ‘preserve units’ and switch them to mm, a model that is 69mm tall shows up around 24mm tall. When I try switching the units to inches in the import dialog, the model imports at the same scale as before…

Hi Dan - I’ll check this, thanks.

I see it here as well - thanks - differently wrong on Mac and Windows from what I can see…

@dantaylr - if you are doing the exporting or are in any position to make demands on whoever is, exporting to older ai format - pre-PDF (I tried 8) gets the scaling correct in Rhino.
