Hi, I have a displacement object in rhino which when i render in Enscape is not displaying (See attachments)
Is there either a way to convert the rhino displacement into an actual object (not a displaced image) or to make it display in Enscape?
Too complicated. Better to associate the a suitable Revit family with the Enscape asset. This clarifies graphics, visibility states, scheduling, family category and other parameters.
Hi, what do you mean by "associate"? You mean load the Enscape geometry into a Revit family?
Meanwhile I would manage this issue creating a project parameter (maybe shared parameter) for planting and the categories Enscape use for their assets. I usually do this for creating filters for hide / show / modify view.
There are many ways to achieve this within Revit, even with little effort.
Two easy solutions from the top of my head:
- Use the design option with the assets in different option sets
- Use a system parameter (like comments or type comments) in combination with viewfilters
These do not allow you to make a change globally though.
Lets say for example i have Enscape trees and people families in the project and i want the trees to always appear as green in all views and the people appear as grey in all views. There is no way that I can see of making that change globally, The only option would be to assign a project parameter (trees, people) and then filtering each view using templates.
Is there not a way of setting a sub-category in the planting family which would allow us this flexibility. I see a parameter "label" but am unable to assign a value to it. Can anyone advise?
Another solution I have found is to double click on the object that you wish to zoom to.
Answering my own question here but I remembered that you can use the arrow up/down/left\right keys to get "elevation" views of the object. This will automatically zoom to fit which is a work around. Although i would still be interested if there is a zoom to fit shortcut that keeps the same angle.
Also while we are on it.... is there a way to view in plan? I feel like when I try to navigate to a "flat" plan view the panning bottoms out and I am unable to get to a vertical "birds eye" perspective.
Merci a tous.
Hi, just a quick one. I sometimes lose the model through zooming or panning or often the opening screen brings to me to distant view of the object where I have to pan or zoom for a long time to "reach" it in the frame.
Is there a quick way (keyboard shortcut) to zoom extents to take me straight to the content?
Welcome to our forum Glenn , first of, check out our dedicated knowledgebase article here which explains which formats you can use for a custom skybox in Enscape if you like.
Furthermore, you can actually simply use the so called "Google Street View" app on either your iPhone or Android device to create a 360 degree image. Alternatively, you could also acquire a dedicated 360 degree camera instead to also take images more easily, also without less stitching artifacts which may result when taking a 360 degree image with your phone for example.
I am struggling to use Google Street View to generate my Skybox. My problems are as follows:
1. One i have taken the 360 panorama with Google Street View (on an iPhone) it asks me to upload it to Google Maps which means that I am forced to share the image with the public which I don't particularly want to do.
2. Once it is online I am given the option to save the image to my phone/computer however the resolution is terrible (see attached). The total file size of the image is 81.3KB
Are you able to assist with these issue?
Is there a way to not show the layer (in my case keep it as air) but keep the layers beyond it opaque?
Hi, I am an Enscape newbie so apologies if i ask stupid questions.
i would like to ask, how did you make the earth/terrain in your background grey?
Mine is black and very over powering visually.
See attachment for illustration.
