  1. @TomKen use the youtube help
  2. @zoomer @Taproot The missing geometry that sometimes happen to VW PIO's like slabs, roofs and others, is cased by flipped face normals and are easy fixed in TM. You can use the material picker to select the texture and under "more..." you can make it double-sided. In fact you can select all material in the imported file and make them all double sided in one click.
  3. I have been using Twinmotion for a while. ( bought it at full prize (-: ) Its really intuitive and gets good result after just a few hour work. To get really good renderings and a certain mood you need to fiddle with the lighting settings. Still its quite nice straight out of the box and the fast rendering makes it easy to experiment

    3D printing recommendations

    We are having a discussion at the office if it is a good point in time to buy a 3d printer. We are designing most projects as VW 3d models Is it possible to print the models without too much trouble today? Do you have any recommendations for workflows and hardware? Kind regards Hans-Olav

    Project sharing walls randomly disappear

    Could it be that your project is far from the internal origin? I have seen walls disappear when some objects are far out or the origin is far from the walls
