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.

Importing in Rhinoceros 2. 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 arcscwne outlined faces change. How to do it then? All exort represented by points I would create 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.

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. Your file will be exported as a.

Post as a guest Name. The same applies if you’ve visualized a very large expanse of terrain. ArcScene is really nice for very quick demos but limited for anything beyond that. You may need to toggle the VRML file type pull down menu in order to see your file. More than likely, you will have to scale your mesh to the correct size if you want it to be to scale.


This might be easy, but I’m a newbie in using ArcScene and I can’t figure out how to do it.

Exporting a 3D VRML model in ArcScene

In the Export dialogue box choose a destination and file name for your 3D file. The imported surface can sometime have an elevated “lip” around the edge of the terrain which can be manually trimmed away in Rhino. You can again toggle the pulldown for filetype and select VRML from the list.

The great advantage of this approach is you have vastly more control over animate, lighting, fly-throughs, texturing etc. There are plugins that will take georeferenced arcscdne, DEMs and shapefiles. 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 Aecscene software.

However, I used to do something similar a lot. 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. When you import your surface, it should appear like this: So I made a sphere in SketchUp and exported it as a vrml file and tried to exprt it to the terrain model in ArcScene.

A dialogue box should open for you to select your file. After you select your file, a new box will open up with a couple different options.

But then your VRML file will use the units of the scene you already setup. To get the Z value I used extract values to points. However, it would export the terrain reasonably efficiently. You can solve this problem by leaving the box “Turn to 3DS Coordinates” checked when you import the file.


You can import all your layers into Blender, use the point-data shapefiles as particle instances to instantiate your point objects or use a raster as a particle generator to control size and density of the srcscene objects.

I need to add to this model arcsccene 3D objects like a sphere, cube etc. I don’t know if ArcScene 33d 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. Notice that all the faces of the polygon mesh are rendered properly and the buildings are facing the correct way in the Z-axis.

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. X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc.

And the exportation fails as well. X3D gives you much better animation, physics, editors and viewers etc ArcScene is really nice for very quick demos but limited for anything beyond that. Here we demonstrate how to do this with Rhinoceros and 3DS Max. Which VRML viewer are you arcsscene
