    Hello,

    I´m currently evaluating both rhino6 and Unity reflect to help a client with unity development.

    I have installed the Rhino Plugin from the Unity "ReflectInstaller.exe" and imported reflect from the package manager in unity.

    I can´t see any Reflect UI in Rhino to hook the file to Unity. Anybody knows what I´m missing or why it doesn´t work?

    All the best,

    Hey BobbyRoss,
    Rhino is a bit different because all plugins are Commands. So you'll need to run the "ReflectGUI" command ion Rhino to make the plugin show up. You can have a look at the Rhino Plugin Manager to verify that the plugin is well installed, and see which commands are available there.
    Have a look at the Rhino plugin documentation for details!

    Hi again,

    I tried the command in Rhino and that did the trick! Thanks.

    Now I can´t get it to sync it to Unity. I first did a few attempts on a pretty large scene and couldn´t get it to sync.

    I then made a new basic test scene to troubleshoot if it was because of the scene or something else. Please see the attached screenshots.

    - I am logged in, inside of Unity
    - Rhino Revit Plugin says it has exported the scene
    - Unity scene to sync to has given me green light.
    - Unity Reflect many can´t find the model, nor give me any feedback about it´s loading.

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks, Robert

    Hi Bobbyross,

    I noticed your Reflect window UI is different than mine, which version of the Reflect package are you using? Make sure to use the latest one, is which is preview.104 - 1.3.0. If it still doesn't work, maybe try a different export workflow (local or cloud)

    Hi Mika,

    Thanks for your response!

    I´m currently on the latest Reflect version that I can see, which is UnityReflect.png

    Can this be a Unity version thing?

    I´m am currently on the Unity version 2018.3.11f1

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert

    You're definitely experiencing those issues because you're on 2018.3, we only officially support Unity 2019.3 and 2019.4 currently

    Ah!! That was it. My mistake, I installed the wrong version!

    I got it to work directly now. Thanks for the support... Now back to evaluation :)

    All the best,
    Robert
