Why can’t you snap object from imported files?

I’ve imported files from Rhino and I can’t even snap on curves, or even create a face from it. I’m doing architecture so it will be useful instead of only snaping to the grid. The snapping options are limited.

I tried pro version it’s the same so I cancel my membership.
If you have such a feature I will be interested to combine with RHINO or Autocad.

Thank you

Can you elaborate a bit please? What exactly did you import? Can you post a screenshot maybe?

Have you not covered the limited snap abilities of Shapr3d? But please expand on the issue again, Istvan.

? :slight_smile:


I see what you mean. These are not imported as sketches, but as general bodies. We will implement DXF support soon that will allow you to import curves as sketches.

oohh nice looking forward in can’t wait… :grinning::grinning::grinning::grinning:

So there’s no software able to translate from curves to sketches…? I would to by it if there is…? Thank you

By the way I converted to STEP file from Rhino does it not matter for to convert vector curves into sketch…? Just curious is there another I could process this that I’m not aware of. I tried converting IGes file from Rhino but shape3 doesn’t recognise it.
Should I process from Cad give the best alternative or software to use to convert to sketch lines. Thank you

Unfortunately currently you can’t convert imported geometry to sketches.

Okay I see thank. But you can they other way around…?

Currently it is not possible, but this feature is coming soon.
