I'm trying to export around 2000 simple block buildings from ArcScene 10.3. I've converted to feature class and then 'Multipatch to Collada' but have run into a problem. Each building is saved as a separate dae file and when imported puts them all at the same origin. I need them either to be exportable/importable as one object or import maintaining the positional relationships to the other buildings. Is there a way of doing this?

Sadly I don't have Data Interoperability Tools to try to export as 3ds or obj.

  • Problem solved. If anyone else has the problem - At the conversion to multipatch stage use an ID that is shared by all buildings (in my case it was called 'featurecon' which all had a value of 1). Then when converting to Collada they all imported as one object. – Stirling Dec 5 '18 at 15:45
