Maybe you could add a newer file type import option also into native Rhino5
Another one bites the dust!
Does anybody have any tips on how to get a Warehouse model into Rhino without having to install anything on your PC?
I recently opened one that was later than 8 in the WIP - because it wouldn’t open in V5 - and then pasted it back into V5, but I have no idea what version .skp it actually was…
Well - I thought I had tried that last week. I had the impression that the WIP didn’t read anything newer than the 8 version but I must have done something wrong because now it works.
Next question: When I read the Warehouse sketchup file in Sketchup and export to version 8 and then import that one into Rhino 5, textures and all come in nicely in Rhino. When I import the Warehouse sketchup file into the WIP and use the Rendered display mode, the textures are missing.
Rhino 6 WIP:
Hi Wim -checking that, thanks.
@wim - it looks like you need to set ‘Use the Sketchup Texture Writer to create textures’ when you open these in V6:
I’m still rather confused after trying a few more things.
I downloaded the table and chairs model from the warehouse either as SketchUp 2014 or 2015 version. Opened that in SketchUp and saved as version 8 model. Imported that in Rhino and in [my slightly modified] Rendered display mode it looks like this:
The shadows appear to be the result of the
… > Rendered > Lighting Scheme > Lighting method > Scene Lightingsetting that appears to be factory-default.
RH6 WIP I first imported the 2015/2014 version model with "SketchUp Texture Writer" checked and placed one viewport in Rendered and one in Raytraced with this result:
Then, in another Rhino session, I imported the version 8 model and turned on the sun to obtain shadows (the Scene Lighting setting doesn't produce them here...).
Then, when I go back to that other RH6 session (the one with the 2015/2014 version) and turn on the sun there, all of a sudden more textures are read by the Rendered display mode but not by the Raytraced mode. Turning off the sun to make textures go away again doesn't work.
I don’t think the texture issuesin Raytraced have to do with lighting, but possibly is https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-38300
But the floor isn’t cylindrical, is it?
Title is misleading, read the comments. There are problems with texture mappings and so on. Title is from initial find
