I am working on a project to render a SolidWorks assembly and show it in a home environment.
To save time, I suggested looking on TurboSquid to see if they could find something they liked. Here is a link to what they purchased:
Here is a screen shot. Looks pretty good.
I then imported the OBJ model into Visualize 2018:
Here it is without the walls. Not quite the same . . .
I want to set this up in Visualize Professional 2018 to get closer to what is shown in TurboSquid. Then I will add the SolidWorks assembly and position it before rendering.
Question 1: Has anyone else done this workflow (combining OBJ and SW models in Visualize)?
Because of all the polygons, I figure this will be easier than importing the OBJ into SolidWorks then create the assembly there before exporting to Visualize.
Question 2: The OBJ download also had a MTL file, so I thought the appearance would be better.
I was also given a MAX file that had a subfolder "Texture" with JPG files of all the appearances. Is there a way to use those files when I add appearances to the OBJ model in Visualize?
Question 3: Am I wasting my time? Should I be looking for a better file format to import into Visualize?
I see he created it in 3DS Max 2014. But he saved it as MAX and OBJ only. I know Visualize can import 3DS Max files if they are saved in .3DS format. So do I just ask him to save the MAX file as 3DS?
