EarthAnchorPoint / KML Export - North Error

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 I can manually edit the KMZ/KML file that is output and get it to orient correctly.
