Help with .3ds export (using SketchUp)


Recommended Posts

Basically I design a house and when I export it (using the correct export parameters) there are some faces that doesn't appear. For example, the roof. I think it could be the way it is designed, something that sketchup can't export. It worked well for many of the houses I've designed but for some others I have that problem.

So I wanted to ask if there's a secure way to export a model from sketchup preserving every face or if there's a restriction with the modelling like overlapping shapes.


Thanks in advance smile.gif


PS: the problem is not with the sketchup model itself but the .3ds that I import to 3DS Max

i always say this : sketchup is not for details such as windows and so.

sketchup it's only for Boxes.


instead of using the glass in sketchup, use a texture like this :
