iRhino load / open from URL and / or QR code (server problem)

I’m missing an option to open a file from a URL. Can this please be added?

Another thing I’m not sure about are display modes. I switched off isocurves in my Rhino file and in iRhino I need to do that separately? Is that how it should be?

Hi Martin -

I suppose that might depend on how you “switched them off”. Display modes don’t travel with the 3dm file.

Thanks @wim. Got it and that’s ok.

@mkarimi I’ve just installed iRhino through testflight. How about loading files from a URL or QR code?

If you have a URL that downloads a 3DM file it should just work. I just made a QR code pointing to this URL which contains a 3dm file.

On my iPhone scanning the QR code above in the camera App, opens chrome, downloads the file, and gives me option to open in iRhino3D.

Here’s how it goes:


This is brilliant! Thank you for sharing @martinsiegrist

I have to try this again but my edge browser opens the file instead of downloading

Are you referring to something different than the iRhino app for iPhone and iPad?

No, I just have not figured out how to download a Rhino file from a URL and not have the browser (Edge) display the file as a code. Safari seems to have an option to load the linked file which I don’t know how to do in Edge.

Here’s what I’m looking at when I enter my URL with the 3dm file on my server:

Could be a problem with your link, I just downloaded Edge on my phone (and immediately uninstalled it :slight_smile: ) . It gives me an option to download the link above and open in iRhino

I’m using edge on an iPhone.

Safari also does not show the option to save a download.

Interesting it works with your link above.

I added the first three lines to my .htaccess file and it seems to work now.
