[Answered] Rhino model import - always one object?

Hello,

I've been scouring the forums for an answer to this question but have had no luck. When importing a Rhino model, Lumion interprets the model as one object. To clarify, I modeled a simple wall, with door jamb, casing, floor and base molding. The Rhino file was saved as a COLLADA (*.dae) file and once imported into Lumion, it is interpreted as a single object. The floor, casing, molding, etc. is all connected and materials cannot be applied to individual components. Is there a way to import a model from Rhino, that would allow Lumion to detect the separate pieces, floor, wall, trim, etc. to have materials applied to them individually? It would be better to not carpet the floor and walls :)
Certainly this is a process issue error on my end that I just can't figure it out!

Hope all have a good day!

Welcome, 35design. :)

Did you already read this post on how material assignments are interpreted when importing Rhino models in Lumion?
