Import Rhino Model

Use File > Open or File > Interoperability > Merge to open a Rhino 3D Model file (.3dm) directly in ARCHICAD.
In the File > Open or Interoperability > Merge dialog box, chose the Rhino 3D Model (.3dm) file type.
Click Settings to open Rhino File Open Options:
Optionally, check the Bake Curved Geometry box to finalize segmentation before import. As a result:
To import them, check the Import hidden elements box.
If you used Open to import the Rhino model: Type a name for the Layer onto which to place the entire Rhino model.
If you used Merge to import the Rhino model: Use the pop-up to choose the ARCHICAD Layer onto which to place the entire Rhino model.
Use the Rhino Import Object Settings panel of Object Settings to set its 2D and 3D appearance.
This control is available for objects imported from Rhino, provided that you did not check the Bake Curved Geometry option at import. (See Baked Curved Geometry, above.)
Note: If you placed the selected object in ARCHICAD using the Object tool (instead of importing it from Rhino), Segmentation is not available.
Show Face Edges: Show them if you want to see the internal surface edges in 2D.
Hotspots on bounding box: Turn this on if you want to see additional hotspots on the object’s bounding box in 2D. This can be useful, for example, for dimensioning an orthogonal object such as a curtain wall.
Show Face Edges: Not available if Smooth Edges is turned on. Show them if you want to see internal surface edges in 3D.
Smooth Edges: On by default. If it is off, these edges become hidden edges (no visible contours), but they still affect the shading.
Show Hotlines: If this is on, you can snap to edge hotlines to facilitate selection.
Note: If you placed the selected object in ARCHICAD using the Object tool (instead of importing it from Rhino), Rhino Element Properties are not available.
After Open, the views of the imported Rhino model are now 3D axonometric views listed in ARCHICAD’s View Map. The view’s display mode (a 3D Window Setting) depends on the original display mode in Rhino.
