I am using EarthAnchorPoint and Export (to KMZ) to insert a model into Google Earth. Everything works except for the north orientation. Regardless of how I set the compass orientation plane (by providing North and East points in the EarthAnchorPoint command), north is always oriented to the World Y-axis.
Is anyone else having this problem? Perhaps I am doing something wrong?
My software: Version 5 SR12 64-bit / (5.12.50810.13095, 8/10/2015)
Hi Jason - it looks wrong to me as well. I’ll look into it, thanks.
I just stumbled across this same problem. The latitude/longitude appears to set correctly, but North and East are wrong no matter what direction is chosen. It does appear to always align North to World Y-axis. I’m using Rhino 6 SR24.
It looks like the value may not be getting set correctly in the KML. See https://developers.google.com/kml/documentation/models. I can manually edit the KMZ/KML file that is output and get it to orient correctly.
Was this ever fixed? I am trying this now, and think I have the same issue that is described above.
Hi Josh - is the location in your file set to North at 90 degrees?
Yes, angle is showing as as non 90 (139 in the model im looking at now), but I’ve tried a few different models to test. And checked with a colleague to make sure it wasn’t just something in my Rhino set up.
Im using R7SR5. Putting the angle in through command window using the EarthAnchorPoint command.
Hi Josh - yep I see… I’ll see if we can fix this.
RH-64368 File IO: KMZ north is always Y
This bug is fixed and the fix will ship with Rhino 7.11.
