Mesh to Heightmap

I’ve built a surface I’d like to convert into a heightmap for uses outside of Rhino. I see what can be done with the heightfield command and making mesh’s with imported images. I’m curious if there is a way to do the reverse and export an image from a mesh.

Thoughts? Tips? Tricks?

The command is ShowZbuffer
You have to be in a shaded viewport and you may want to be in a parallel plan view. You can then use viewcapture to get the bitmap image


Jim - you nailed it. Thanks so much!
