Importing plans

I’d appreciate some help - is it possible to import to Rhino - design plans in 2D and transform them via Rhino into 3D?

Yes, of course. It will depend on the format and quality of those plans of course, as well as your Rhino skills. It’s not a one-click operation.

If the 2D plans are images the Picture command can be used to import and display the images in Rhino. The images can then be used as references when creating 3D geometry.

If the 2D plans are in one of the many CAD formats Rhino supports then the plans can be imported into Rhino. There are some commands such as Crv2V which can be useful when creating 3D geometry from 2D geometry. Also the 2D geometry can be snapped to. As Helvetosaur said it is not a simple one-click or even several click operation to go from 2D to 3D.

Hi David,

Thank you for your response. It is really helpful. We design kitchens, wardrobes and bathrooms using a specialised design programme by Infowood Technologies (Greek company) - they have a feature to ‘transform’ the design from a 2D to a 3D model, however, their 3D is not of the standard we would like for presentation which is the reason for wanting to use Rhino for the final design.

Thank you again.
