Just an update.
Anuj emailed me a file.
I could see that when Inserting an FBX of inches into a Rhino files with a meter scale, Rhino first asks for the standard import options, and then with FBX is asks about to scale geometry by the conversion factor or to continue at fill scale.
The next time the parent file is opened the Linked block is resolved, and the same 2 dialogs appear. The first with FBX import options, has a “do not show again” option that can be checked and assumed as default when FBX files are imported or resolved.
However, the scale dialog, has no option to “do not show again” .
And to make this even worse for Anuj, is Vray batch render opens that files and also stop at this scale dialog.
I have logged RH-55936 Insert Linked Block Issue - Scale Dialog Needs a "Do Not Ask Again."
As a work around, set up a Intermediate file that embeds the Fbx and applies the scaling.
Then in the parent 3dm file, link to the intermediate file.
The intermediate file embeds the FBX, so it will not update automatically with a change or update to the FBX. The intermediate file will require manual updating if the FBX changes.
We will update you on this issue as it progresses.
