Help with Modular Models


(Samanthaquintero) #1

Is there a way to put modular model parts together in sketchfab?

Hi @samanthaquintero,

what is a modular model part?


#3

We can concatenate OBJ files, but it's a bit of a hack.

Typically, it's best if you prepare your full scene before uploading.

Hey Bartv, a modular model is just a part to a much larger scene. For example a model of a building and then a model of a roof, and maybe a chimney.... the parts can then be mixed and matched and fitted in different ways. smile

Aw man... Sketch fab is so much easier to use... frowning I must figure out this hack you speak of... lol jk thanks for the input though.


#6

What software, etc. are you using?

3Ds Max. I'm just being lazy about setting up my model and materials fully there lol. I may just export from unreal 4... idk

The 3ds Max exporter ( https://sketchfab.com/exporters/3dsmax ) is quite robust. But, you'll still have to set up your full scene...
