SketchUp hangs when editing Photogrammetry mesh

Sorry if this is a newbie question, because I’m not a SketchUp user myself.

I’m helping a SketchUp user with providing Photogrammetry models that she uses as a base scenery adding objects onto.

She can import the OBJ, MTRL and JPG texture so that it’s shown in the interface. But when she’s trying to delete areas of the mesh SketchUp hangs.

The Mesh is 50 000 faces with a JPG texture of 12,6 MB that contains the texture of all faces.

Have you experienced something similar?

Thank you very much for your support!

Altering the mesh in sketchup sounds like a tough job. Meshmixer is a free mesh editer with sculpting tools and other tools designed to be used with meshes.

Hi @elitlogik and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I agree with @lmendelson - Meshmixer is a great tool.

If you want a more in-depth tool then Blender is the next level up, and Meshlab also has some useful tools and features.

…and they’re all free!
