ok guys, i have been messing for a long time to find reasonable ways to get rhino files into illustrator without losing any vectors and also having picture frames included, meaning that created layouts in rhino get outputted correctly.
since printing (exporting as pdf) only offers vector while losing picture frames -> or rasterised which kills all further options to reprocess the data is neither sufficient the only option which you can get further with is to export as a dxf or dwg which unfortunately messes up the text but ok for now…
just and here starts the problem, if i use any kind of scale on the picture frame the plain converts into NURBS and from then on its not possible to get the data out of Rhino anymore. only option is to use the gumball for scaling which is not sufficient and precise at all. why would it create NURBS surfaces along with simple scalings?
is there any chance this can be improved?
another thing is when i convert anything to bezier the curves get broken up into several segments, if i do anything to rejoin them again they get exported as polylines… only way is to keep it exploded and join in illustrator which again can be quite a pain.
can this maybe also be improved?
@dan can you maybe check it out?
here the test files if needed.
