Hello! 

Im trying to export a line drawing from Rhino to a pdf so have converted it to dwg on Illustrator. but when I then open it in InDesign, the size shrinks drastically meaning I have to zoom in for at least a couple of seconds to see it. I then spend at least 20 seconds making it bigger through the point on the selected lines. This only happens sometimes but it is very annoying! 

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this sometimes happens?

Thanks !

Why not just place the PDF in InDesign?

Is this Rhino 7 the 3D software? Is there any other file format export settings - maybe try a different format.

 

Why convert it to a DWG in Illustrator?

Hello,

Im completely bugging, let me rephrase.

In Rhino I save the lines as a DWG, I open the DWG in Illustrator and this is when it shrinks to a miniscule size. 

Apologies for my last post, hopefully this is easier to understand!

Thanks

Ah - I see.

Hard to know - maybe contact Rhino support?

 

Found some info here - sorry not a Rhino user

Is this the software you're using?
