Pondering on best way to get Rhino into photoshop as 2D.
I see Pshop opens 3ds and Rhino exports 3ds, thats probaly for the 3|d aspect of photoshop.
however I am first trialling export import as Adobe Illustrator, there being no eps export option in Rhino which worked a treat in Freehand to Photoshop., by the way why cant we have eps export ? its a universal language between progs.
attached a 1000mm x 1000mm box using hairline lineweight to hopefully make the result 1000mm x 1000mm
If bounding box with test boxes is at origin for its lower left corner, export selected, as Adobe Illustrator, it imports as 1000.48mm hgt 1000.48mm width
if its lower left corner is at x 100 and y 100 it imports no longer square ! 1797.4mm width and 1729.67mm height.
I might not have things to export always at origin.
Also I wish to create an aircraft profile from my aviation 3D work, export it into photoshop and colour it up in cmyk.
Line weights dont show unless print preview is on, but then as one zooms they get fatter and fatter until they touch !
At what zoom are they relative to each other, the right proportions. i.e. if I have two panel lines 1mm line weight 100mm apart on the full size aircraft, there will be a certain zoom that portarys this appearance, zoom further out and I can get those panels to touch.
How do we get the line weight to not get thinner or fatter as it s hellishly confusing when trying to create the right look if trying to draw something to look right. display grid at true screen size would be the command, does it exist ?.
The weights display correctly in photoshop I am relieved to say.
text used was Arial, Photoshop also has Arial, yet when I open the ai export from rhino, pshop says …The file uses one or more fonts which are unavailable on this machine, open anyway ? I click continue and get a different looking font and the word weight is now weigh.
If I explode the text, and leaders take two explodes, how can I fill them solid ?
An way of applying cmyk fills to 2D shapes, if all is drawn in e.g. Top view ?
So if I alter the shape of something the fill updates, unlike in Photoshop I would have to repaint the shape.
There is an export cmyk, as RGB fails photoshop, but the colour choice is only RGB from what I can see. I would also like to be able to alter all instances of a colour with a revised colour, can one do that ?
