3D Buildings in Rhino/Grasshopper/Elk - Problems with exporting osm

Hello everyone,

when i export an osm. file from openstreetmap.org i’m missing much Information about heigt.

The only city i can create in 3D is New York. Munich, Berlin, Paris, London etc have nearly no heights.

I’m using Rhinoceros3D+Grasshopper+Elk (http://www.food4rhino.com/app/elk)

When I look at a osm-based render websites like http://demo.f4map.com/#lat=52.5167104&lon=13.3953631&zoom=17 or http://maps.osm2world.org/?zoom=16&lat=52.5182&lon=13.39808&layers=B0TTFF Paris should be nearly complely 3D.

This is a screenshot of my Software. I got 902 buildings in the area around Pont Neuf. But only 19 heights.

This is a screenshot of F4map with the same area nearly 3D.

Somebody has an idea why I don’t download the informations?

I tried donwloading osm files from Geofabrik (https://www.geofabrik.de/en/index.html) but they are too big. Is there a way to donwload or “slice” it in smaller areas without using openstreetmap.org

Thanks for every help.

Best regards,

Sorry, didnt knew it’s not allowed. Just thought the thread would be better under this Topic.

Excuse me please.


You’d better asking in the related Rhinoceros3D+Grasshopper forum, since the issue is about correct processing OSM data by Elk.

Also, you could take look at blender-osm addon for Blender
