Rhino exports as .svg but what is needed as I cant find that option

I am reading on the www that Rhino V5 can now export as .svg

Whaaat? Great that Rhino finally has SVG export! I have been awaiting this feature for like 13 years.
in thread:-

I google this and get:-

I select my curves and go file export but no .svg option exists.
I cant see mention of how its been added.

What is needed and how do we install it ?



Rhino 6 or above is needed…

Hi, Thanks,
thats me scuppered. Had been trying to save up for fixing kitchen floor and getting V6, but a finance company decided to put up to the credit ref agencies the grand total of what I owe on ‘just bought’ white goods that failed, inc 100% interest normally payable if only one doesnt pay a penny over 12 months, so nuking my plans for credit card balance transfer, so now to fix that I have had to use my savings instead to pay them off., then wait a month for them to remove it.
back to gameboard square 1 again.


Steve, Evaluation V6 ?

Hi @Steve1, Have you tried printing as vector .pdf from a layout and opening it in affinity designer. It works here.

It is not the perfect solution, it doesn’t retain layers, but it can work.

You could have said even more with Adobe Indesign, or even others Adobe softwares (until latest versions I think) which is supposedly more “web” friendly than Rhino.
Until now to save as SVG? no problem, I save as AI. Illustrator does the rest. No big deal.

He doesn’t have Illustrator, that’s why he is looking for alternatives. Affinity designer does not support old Ai version ( pre PDF support) and that’s the only supported Ai export from Rhino.

Hi José, I understand you but honestly the AI export (wich has been improved in V6 [ small circles patatoid forms corrected and curves, that might worth to be updated for V5 users as well ] is widely enough for me.
This old AI export shows layers, and that is already something to me.
We are out of CAD considerations at time of saving as SVG.
