I have saved a selection in rhino as a .3dm file and imported it into Archicad 20 through 'merge' and the library. The object is however slightly scaled larger. I have tried re-import and it all results in a slightly scaled object. What more can I try to solve this issue?
Save it as a .3ds format file in Rhino and then use the 3ds import addon in ArchiCAD to bring it in and you can set the size upon import if it doesn't look correct with the figures it tried to import it with.
This has been by go-to method for as long as I can remember as ArchiCAD's '3dm import' workflow is always just rife with these sorts of bugs, errors, headaches and mistakes.
(sometimes it simply won't import the geometry as is and just import some broken up mess and you can't make head or tails or)
It's disappointing to see these kinds of issues still exist with v23 and v24, but like I said, I almost never use that method.
(Another alternative is to convert it to a .skp file in Rhino (sketchup format). ArchiCAD's sketchup "merge" function is much better and gives you comparable results to the 3ds import plugin. IMHO.
The advantage with this method is that you can actually drag the .skp file directly into your ArchiCAD plan window and it will import the file automatically. Useful when importing objects from the Trimble warehouse.)
