place your model at the axis origin:
the centre point of the model’s ground plane is placed on the axis origin. Blue axis is pointing up
no erroneous outlying geometry
turn on hidden geometry and check they’re is nothing lingering around and delete it
model naming conventions:
prefix your model names with:
- your company name or abbreviation
- the number of the model
all in lower case characters and use hyphens(-) instead of spaces eg:
keeping file size to a minimum
as a general rule of thumb make sure textures are no bigger than 1024 X 1024. We recommend 512 X 512
clean your models in skethcup:
If your not prepared to install plugins, at least delete unused materials and “purge unused” from:
window > model Info > statistics
use the Attach Mesh by material to reduce model complexity.
convert materials to “standard materials”. Vray materials wont work.
