I am using Transmutr to import the models from Poliigon. I import the OBJ file, apply the diffuse material and then set the correct units so it appears the correct size in the preview window. (I can’t seem to correctly apply the other materials settings, but can easily do this in vRay once I am in sketchup).
When I then open the model in sketchup the model appears and is the correct size. I can then render the object no problem.
HOWEVER - there seems to be a scaling issue with the object. When I try to navigate or zoom in/out of the model sketchup zooms in/out an extreme amount. Its as if the data for the model size does not match up with how it appears in sketchup. If I right click the object and click ‘Reset Scale’ the object become absolutely enormous but I am then able to move/orientate the object with no issue.
I assume when the object is scaled and imported it appears at the ‘correct size’ however the relative orientate/zoom function in sketchup still sees the object as massive and therefore zooms in/out a relatively enormous amount.
Apologies for the lengthy description - I can’t really add any photos as it would just show the object and then it disappearing as I zoom over it.
I haven’t had this issue with OBJ files downloaded from other sources, and am able to get around this by being very careful in how I move the objects, or orientate around them, in the model - however would like to see a solution to this, if possible.
