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.

It works when exporting a terrain model alone.

Exporting a 3D VRML model in ArcScene

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. This might be easy, but I’m a newbie in using ArcScene and I can’t figure out how to do it. Select the mesh geometry and use the Rotate command to rotate around the origin 0,0,0 by 90 degrees.

Post as a guest Name. However, I used to do something similar a lot. 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.

Your file will be exported as a. Here we demonstrate how to do this with Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. In the Export dialogue box choose a destination and file name for your 3D file. VRML file, the only acrscene type possible to arcscee. How to do it then?

My approach was to export just the terrain and any extruded polygons building footprints etc. All objects represented by points I would create as a VRML object in a modelling package and then inline arscene object to the VRML file and add instantiate it at the point locations. 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.

But I dont know how to put it right on the model surface and how to change the size and colour, if possible. explrt

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


Notice that all the faces of the polygon mesh are rendered properly and the buildings are facing the correct way in the Expoort.

After you select your file, a new box will open up with a couple different options. The same applies if you’ve visualized a very large expanse of terrain. But then your VRML file will use the units of the scene you already setup. 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. You need to adjust your coordinates unless you opt to use real-world coordinates.

Importing exlort Rhinoceros 2. To get the Z value I used extract values to points. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. However, it would export the terrain reasonably efficiently. Probably because of the incompatibility of tiff and shapefile?

ArcScene is really nice for very quick demos but limited for anything beyond that.
