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.

Once you’ve visualized arcscen 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.

Exporting a 3D VRML model in ArcScene

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.

Your file will be exported as a. VRML file, the only file type possible to export. The same applies if you’ve visualized a very large expanse of terrain.

Importing in Rhinoceros 2. You may need to toggle the VRML file type pull down menu in order to see your file.


Select the mesh geometry and use the Rotate command to rotate around the origin 0,0,0 by 90 degrees. Your buildings should now be horizontal. If you zoom in and look closely at the 3D buildings, you will notice that the mesh d3 outlined around particular faces and that when you orbit around the buildings the outlined faces change.

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.

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. While this geometry is usable in Explrt, you will not be able to use functions like Make2D without first converting the mesh geometry to NURBS geometry.

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 imported surface can sometime have an elevated “lip” around the edge of the terrain which can be manually trimmed away in Rhino. A dialogue box should open for you to select your file. You can again toggle the pulldown for filetype and select VRML from the list.


ArcScene _ Exporting 3D Data and Importing in Rhino and 3DS Max

expirt After you select your file, a new box will open up with a couple different options. 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. You can solve this problem by leaving the box “Turn to 3DS Coordinates” checked when you import the file. But then your VRML file will use the units of the scene you already setup.


3e that all the faces of the polygon mesh are rendered properly and the buildings are facing the correct way in the Z-axis. When you import your surface, it should appear like this: More than likely, you will have to scale your mesh to the correct size if you want it to be to scale.
