I’m having trouble exporting ellipses from Rhino to AutoCAD - can anybody send me some settings for the options dialogue that will work please?
I am working in mm, but sometimes work in metres as well, so if the settings are different (I think they would be) could you send some settings for metres as well?
I have attached four files - the original ellipse comes from CAD and is in mm (it is used around a number to indicate ceiling height). That file is imported into Rhino 5, where it shows up as an ellipse, also in mm. I’ve only been able to export it two ways - either as an oversimplified 5 segment polyline, or as a many many segmented polyline, neither of which is what I need - I just need it to come back as a simple ellipse.
I have varied the simplify tolerance between 10 and 0.00001 but get the 5 sided polyline every time. When I tick the curve tesselation box as well, I always get a 2D polyine with far too many segments.
From the help file, it looks like I should be able to export it so that it comes over as an ellipse (I can get circles and arcs to work fine, but not ellipses).
Any ideas please?
