blackisleboy23 Posted November 1, 2010 Share Posted November 1, 2010 Hi all, I've got some really basic queries on 3d, which I was hoping you could help me with? I've been using vectorworks on and off for a few years (currently vectorworks 2010 on mac), and am starting to delve into 3d. I'm modelling some interiors for an extension I'm building, and am getting on ok with the vectorworks side. However, I need to pull in models in dxf/dwg format and from sketchup for things like sanitaryware etc, which are always quite 'messy' when they get imported. For example a bath in sketchup looks nice and smooth, but when it comes into vectorworks it' suddenly lots of polygons and doesn't render as nicely. My question is this: can anyone recommend a good workflow for bringing in external 3d models in a variety of formats that will import 'nicely' without me having to do lots of tidying up of the models (which I don't know how to do anyway!), and can someone explain why they import in such a messy way - is it with the different ways that programmes create 3d models? Once the whole thing's composed I will probably then export them to sketchup / piranesi / artlantis to render (depending which one I like best when the time comes to try them out). If that makes any sense at all, I'd love to hear your comments, Thanks, Graham Quote Link to comment
