Importing photo to 3d model files from Nomad? Not coming in with textures.

Recommended Posts

I created some 3D models of light fixtures from nomad using photos to 3D model and I'm having a hard time getting them into my vwx drawing. I try dragging the .obj file in from the vectorworks cloud services folder which has the .mtl file and the other texture files and it still comes in as just a wireframe mesh. I can't figure out how to fix it.

Hey @JonKoch,

Make sure that there is a 'fill' associated with the mesh object. If your fill attributes are set to 'none' prior to import, it will pick up those attributes and look like it's in wireframe. You can always select the mesh object and apply a fill to it. Hope this helps!Mesh wireframe.png
