FBX - exporting blocks as instances

(Willem Derks) #1


I’d wish for the FXB exporter to export blocks as instances.
Or did I miss something and is it already possible?



What program do you want to export your fbx to?
I looked through All of the export format options and not a single one actually has a place to tick a box that mentions
blocks or instances.
fbx seems to have that ability- listed in its specs…in 3dsmax and maya.

try.this- from a blender forum.
“The ASCII FBX exporter could handle exporting group instances”…rhino does have an option for this at least.


So, the question stay unanswered, could it be possible to add it to Rhino? I like to send data as FBX to a client, but the scene is using a lot of blocks.

@Tim, any idea here?

So, at the moment, it is on the list but it turns out it is not straightforward at all to do this, and it has not been given a high priority so far.



Is there an other file format to export a scene of meshes with blocks? My client like to create a RT model from my render model.

Hi Micha,

A shot in the dark: Did you already try DXF/DWG?
