Will Plotly export 3D building to a PDF with all elements are vector format?

Will Plotly export 3D building to a PDF with all elements are vector format?

Hi @ConAntares, static image export to vector formats can now be done offline without an account using the orca project. See https://plot.ly/python/static-image-export/. But, hereโ€™s an important note from that page:

Note: It is important to note that any figures containing WebGL traces (i.e. of type scattergl, heatmapgl, contourgl, scatter3d, surface, mesh3d, scatterpolargl, cone, streamtube, splom, or parcoords) that are exported in a vector format will include encapsulated rasters, instead of vectors, for some parts of the image.

So you can export 3D plots to PDF/EPS format, but they will still be included as raster (non-vector) images. This is also the case for the online export under a paid account.
