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.

Exporting a 3D document

acscene Here we demonstrate how to do this with Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. The great advantage of this approach is you have vastly more control over animate, lighting, fly-throughs, texturing etc. Your buildings should now be horizontal. This is because ArcScene exports the VRML as one-sided and so it renders the meshes one-sided and although some mesh faces appear to be missing, the geometry is there but not rendered.

But when I try to export it, it always crashes down. My approach was to export just the terrain and any extruded polygons building footprints etc. Probably because of the incompatibility of tiff and shapefile?

This might be easy, but I’m 3e newbie in using ArcScene and I can’t figure out how to do it. You need to adjust your coordinates unless you opt to use real-world coordinates. Select the mesh geometry and use the Rotate command to rotate around the origin 0,0,0 by 90 degrees. Importing in Rhinoceros 2.

A dialogue box should open for you to select your file. I can’t find the right way.

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


You can solve this problem by leaving the box “Turn to 3DS Coordinates” checked when you import the file. However, I used to do something similar a lot.

If you do this, MAX will import the file rotated about the X-axis like it does in Rhino and you will have to rotate it back to horizontal again. However, it would export the terrain reasonably efficiently.

X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc. Sign up using Email and Password. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

You can again toggle the pulldown for filetype and select VRML from the epxort. VRML file, the only file type possible to export.

In the Export dialogue box choose a destination and file name for your 3D file.

A much better alternative option is to use a ‘proper’ 3D modelling package like Blender. Your file will be exported as a. And the exportation fails as well.

There are plugins that will take georeferenced rasters, DEMs and shapefiles. I need to add to this model some 3D objects like a sphere, cube etc. When you import your surface, it should appear like this: While this will cause it to appear incorrectly in the viewport in Shaded mode, it should appear correctly in Rendered Viewport mode and when Rendering using Rhino Render or other rendering engines like Vray.


Notice that all the faces of the polygon mesh are rendered properly and the buildings are facing the correct way in the Z-axis. Sign up using Facebook. The imported surface can sometime have an elevated “lip” arcscenf the edge of the terrain which can be manually trimmed away in Rhino.

Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. 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. It works when exporting a terrain model alone. How to do it then? Post as a guest Name.

Once you’ve visualized your data in 3D using ArcScene as demonstrated in the expoet Visualizing Data in 3Dyou can export your three-dimensional data to be imported and used in 3D CAD software. To export 3D objects out of ArcScene to be used in other 3D modelling applications? What is your end goal?

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. The VRML exported from ArcScene is verbose 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.

All objects represented by points I would exort as a VRML object in a modelling package and then inline the object to the VRML file and add instantiate it at the point locations.

The same applies if you’ve visualized a very large expanse of terrain. Email Required, but never shown. After you select your file, a new box will open up with a couple different options.
