PDF Export Misses Data from Top view?

I’m trying to use Rhino to be able to export certain parts of my document as Orhtographic PDFs.
This is the file I’m having trouble with.
PDFProblem.3dm (915.6 KB)

  1. I select the objects in the scene (its part of a bigger project but I isolated the problem to this).
  2. File->Export Selected -> PDF

In “Vector Output” mode, it looks ok, but no texture (which is expected):

In “Raster Output” mode, from Top view, I see nothing (which is what I want help with):

In “Raster Output” mode, from Perspective view, I see the objects (but the result does not look like I want it to)

Is this expected behavior? Am I doing something wrong?

Hello - as far as I can see this works here in Top - does this look like what you are after?

Please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and copy/paste the results here.


Did you achieve this output using Raster Output + Top + Extents configuration?

Here are is the output:

Hello - thanks, I see the ‘extents’ problem now.
