Question

I would like to use the export of visual objects to RWIND Simulation. How do I scale my visual object for the import?

Answer

3ds files do not contain any scale information. If you know the maximum dimensions of your object, you can import the visual object at the correct scale.

Figure 01 - Envelope Dimension in Rhino 6

The maximum dimension of our visual object is 10 m. We can use this value and define it as an absolute, maximum size in the settings when inserting the visual object. Furthermore, you can select various points where the visual object can be positioned. Our structure modeled previously fits exactly the desired location.

Figure 02 - Insert Visual Object - Settings

As of the program version xx.23.01, you can use the visual objects for the export as a terrain model or an environment model for the calculation in RWIND Simulation.

Figure 03 - Simulate and Generate Wind Loads - Settings

Therefore, these objects are also used in the calculation of all load cases in the background.
