Improvements :chart_with_upwards_trend:

  • We’ve changed the way we handle models with more than 100 materials, and also reprocessed all “legacy” models that still had more than 100 materials. Instead of merging everything into 1 empty material, we “clamp” the materials at 100 and try to preserve the most important.
