Note also, the ‘Options’ button on the import dialog does not work either (so input for scale, etc…)
FWIW: this exact same DXF file imports perfectly well in Rhino-7, but obviously since Rhino7 is so, so, slow on M1 with lots of small objects (like CAD drawings) it would be great to be able to do the import and work in R8.
For now, the workaround is to import in R7, save, and then open in R8 to do what I need with the underlays.
I’m unable to reproduce that issue here but I’m on an Intel Mac.
Just to limit some of the variables here - does the same thing happen with files on your local disk (i.e. not synchronized on Dropbox)? Could you post a DXF file that behaves like that on your system?
Thanks so much for taking a look, that is really interesting…
for me: I don’t ever get any ‘options’, whether I ‘File/Import…’ or ‘File/Open…’ I get the normal dialog, with an ‘options’ button, but when I click it nothing happens…
Thanks for all the info. I’d like to start by trying to determine if your issue is the same as this one (or not):
RH-67679 On Mac DXF/DWG Plugin is Enable but Not Loaded
Only one of us at McNeel is experiencing this bug and we never got to the bottom of it, which is frustrating.
Can you please do the following for me?
Quit the RhinoWIP (if it is already running).
Launch the Console.app. (The easiest way to do this is to press Command+. to start Spotlight search and then type Console and press return.) Console lets us see the output of some back-of-house debugging messages).
Click the Start button. This will start Console listening.
Launch the RhinoWIP. This is when it loads all the plugins, like Import_ACAD.
When it is done launching, start a new modeling window.
Go back to Console and press the Pause button.
In the search bar, type: Error loading and press return.
Does it show a Message from Rhino like:
Error loading /Applications/RhinoWIP.app/Contents/PlugIns/import_ACAD.rhp/Contents/MacOS/import_ACAD: dlopen(/Applications/RhinoWIP.app/Contents/PlugIns/import_ACAD.rhp/Contents/MacOS/import_ACAD, 265): Library not loaded: TD_DbEntities.tx
Referenced from: /Applications/RhinoWIP.app/Contents/Frameworks/ATEXT.tx
Reason: image not found
If you click on an error in the list, it will show the full error at the bottom of the screen. There might be 3 of these, if you are experiencing the same bug as listed above. Can you please copy/paste the text in here if you are seeing them?
Hi @dan Thanks for taking a look at this. And yes you bet: happy to try that out. I closed everything else and tried to capture the Console sessions as quickly as possible while opening Rhino 8 WIP. So this is what it shows me when I filter for “Error”:
Well, we missed a week of RhinoWIP builds unfortunately due to reasons beyond our control. I really hope we get another RhinoWIP out next week with this fix in. In the meantime, you are welcome and encouraged to test out a “daily build” of the RhinoWIP with this fix in it (though it may be even less stable than a typical WIP). You might consider just putting it on your Desktop and testing it from there and deleting it after. Regardless, the fix should be in next week’s WIP.
