DataSmith - Rhino 2 Unreal

good morning,

thank you very much for this wonderful piece of software. I am working with rhino for nearly 20 years and and now I am playing around with some basic animation tools in unreal 5.2.
so what I do is I export every thing out of rhino with datasmith and had a few days pretty good experinces with the direct link option.
when I started to merge actors in unreal, things started to get a little bit messy, because suddenly the direct link did not work any more and disappeared completly.

so my question is: how do I import scenes from rhino to unreal with all objects on a layer combines to a single element? (no 2.398 breps)
how do you manage to work with direct link from rhino?

thank you,


Combined to a single element you will have to merge in UE but then you will have to do that after every live link update.

At least make sure all repetiting geometry is instanced Using Datasmith with Rhino in Unreal Engine | Unreal Engine 5.2 Documentation
