Broken plane on an object issue

Post by andersoncheng » Fri Aug 13, 2021 1:37 am

Hi Dialux Export,

I often use Sketch-up model as 3ds file then import it to Dialux Evo.
I always have the issue that a simple plane becomes two triangles.
Any way that to produce a simple and clean surface?

Hi Anderson,

The surfaces in 3ds files are always triangles. It is a limitation of the file format.
Perhaps you can try to import your model as .sat file, the surface should be "clean" of triangles.

Best regards
