In the document I have set some settings such as extrustion etc., My requirement is to convert the sxd to 3D PDF format only. Kindly suggest me. ArcScene™ can be used to create both realistic and thematic 3D scenes, and with ArcGIS® , you can use the “Export To 3D Web Scene” geoprocessing tool. Esri, the Esri globe logo, ArcGIS, ArcScene, ArcToolbox, 3D Analyst, , Export To 3D Web Scene, to export your ArcScene documents to 3D web.

You can solve this problem by leaving the box “Turn to 3DS Coordinates” checked when you import the file. While this geometry is usable in Rhino, you will not be able to use functions like Make2D without first converting the mesh geometry to NURBS geometry.

In the Export dialogue box choose a destination and file name for your 3D file. Importing in Rhinoceros 2. If you do this, MAX will import the file rotated expor the X-axis like it does in Rhino and you will have to rotate it back to horizontal again. How to do it then? So I made a sphere in SketchUp and exported it as a vrml file and tried to add it to the terrain model in ArcScene. It also didn’t used to properly instantiate repeated objects – making the VRML rather inefficient and difficult to edit later.


However, it would export the terrain reasonably efficiently. This might be 3f, but I’m a newbie in using ArcScene and I can’t figure out how to do it.

X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc. If you zoom in and look closely at the 3D buildings, you will notice that the mesh is outlined around particular faces and that when you orbit around the buildings the outlined faces change.

It works when exporting a terrain model alone. ArcScene will break the terrain surface into tile sections, and you will see multiple overlapping tiles at three levels of resolution low, medium, and high. When you import your surface, it should appear like this: The VRML exported from ArcScene is exoprt and not always well-formed so I didn’t like it and therefore do not recommend that you try to export your whole model in one go.

To get the Z value I used extract values to points.

Exporting a 3D VRML model in ArcScene

VRML file, the only file type possible to export. And the exportation fails as well. Here we demonstrate how to do this with Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. Select the mesh geometry and use the Rotate command to rotate around the arcscdne 0,0,0 by 90 degrees. ArcScene xrcscene really nice for very quick demos but limited for anything beyond that.

More than likely, you will have to scale your mesh to the correct size if you want it to be to scale.


I don’t know if ArcScene ever did support X3D in the end see this thread – where you will note that the OP there also suffered a similar crashing issue to yours. While this will cause it to appear incorrectly in the viewport in Shaded mode, it should appear correctly 3x Rendered Viewport mode and when Rendering using Rhino Render or other rendering engines like Vray.

The imported surface can sometime have an elevated “lip” around the edge of the terrain which can be manually trimmed away in Rhino.

However, I used to do something similar a lot. Once you’ve visualized your data in 3D using ArcScene as demonstrated in the tutorial Visualizing Data in 3Dyou can export your three-dimensional data to be imported and used in 3D CAD software. Your file will be exported as a.

But then your VRML file will use the units of the scene you already setup. But when I try to export it, it always crashes down. I can’t find the right way.
