Vectoworks to Rhino and Back Again... why no Classes to Layers Translation?

Recommended Posts

I have been setting up a workflow between myself and new consultants. I use vectorworks mainly to define the Project, Scope of work and its Existing Geometry. Within the current workflow I export to Rhino and Back again into Vectorworks numerous times.

 

Question I have : is there some reason that my classes in Vectorworks Do Not Export to Rhino as the equivalent of its Layers and vice versa. It would make interoperability 150x faster... or perhaps more... maybe less...

Is there something I am not aware of to achieve this? Or is this not possible yet?

 

Any help with getting my classes and their geometry exported to Rhino on corresponding Layers so we can turn them off and on, and getting into the Design world even faster would be amazingly helpful! Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Did you try exporting to DWG first and then export the DWG into Rhino? If it is just for transferring geometry it might be an option.
