Import a SubDTool in to keyshot

Hey there,

I was Modeling a spoon with the SubDTool and wanted to import it into key shot but it always shows me ERROR to import. Does anyone know why?

Thanks in advance


Hello - Keyshot presumably does not support SubD… yet. You can Mesh the objects in Rhino, or ToNurbs and see how that works.


Just out of curiosity, did you try using the Keyshot Plugin or just importing the file?

just installed rhino 7 for trial. Created a basic subD model… hit the Keyshot plugin and I also soo that subd does not come accross? is this a known issue ? SubD > Keyshot - model does not come accross?

Hi @rfollett
KS 10.1 added support for R7, so update KS and it should work.

just had this from luxion:

Sadly this is still a feature that is not yet supported.
We do have an open issue with the development team to try and add this feature for 10.2 later this year possibly around summer.

Hi @rfollett
Weird - I was positive that I had it working :face_with_monocle: I must have converted to NURBS first - sorry for getting your hopes up :grimacing:

What is the convert to nurbs command please?

as written above you mean this if i am not mistaken
