Export Rhino as Images (PNGs, JPEGs)

Hi everyone,

I am trying to export a rhino file with multiple layers with planning objects as images. I want to set a boundary starting from origin, eg. 1km rectangle and I want that to be transformed as a image from the top view. I have different layers of information and need one image per layer.

Is there an easy way to automate this or do it in grasshopper where I can quickly get like 10 pictures, one for each layer? I’ll attach an example file.

planning.3dm (5.5 MB)


Graphic Plus.gh (13.5 KB)
You can export as bitmaps as well.


Hi @Quan_Li,

Your solution was great and really helpful, is there a way I could make this compatible with Rhino Compute, so essentially I read a rhino file and spits out images for me?


I don’t think that is possible in Rhino7.
