Try this tutorial Zorro, and let me know how you go. It’s quite detailed and well presented.

Just a little city I call home. :smile:

There are many wonderful places to visit both for cultural enrichment and for sport. Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Great American Ballpark just to name two.

Cincinnati! You’ve got to look at this: http://iqc.ou.edu/2014/12/12/60yrsmidwest/
Amazing transformation of the urban plan and density, with the introduction of high volume arterials.

Also, I read a little about the Brewery District Master plan a couple of years ago. What’s happening there? Any progress?

@zorro you need to mainpulate your import settings when you bring it into blender… on my first couple of imports, I didn’t have settings correct and it was not appearing correctly.

I watched that video and using an older version of Blender doesn’t seem like a very practical solution - the tutorial is from 2013. The latest version of Blender has the ability to import export .dxf but you must set that in preferences…

You’ll want to set your units prior to import:

Then you have to SAVE your .blend file prior to import…

Then perform the import:
My custom import settings are as follows:

I would love to see the output of your city in High Fidelity.
