Re-uploading will replace the old model with a new upload, but maintain the same URL, likes, settings, etc.
You can re-upload a model from More → Re-upload.
If processing fails, we will revert to the previous version.
What's preserved during re-upload?
- Model URL / embed URL
- Model metadata (title, description, categories, tags, download license)
- Views, likes, and comments
- Staff pick status
- Scene settings (orientation*, camera, FOV, Rendering mode, Shading, post-processing filters)
- Lighting settings
- Post-Processing Filters
- Material settings**
*Be sure to check your camera position and annotations after re-upload - we assume a consistent model orientation and scale.
**Material definitions are compared (based on name) before and after re-upload. If the material name is the same, we keep edits that have been made in 3D Settings. Materials are updated per channel, i.e. uploading a new Diffuse color will not change any other settings for that material. We keep old textures if the new upload does not include new versions. We replace textures if the new version has a texture with the same name. SSS / Translucency and Displacement settings are always preserved because no format currently supports those channels in our processing pipeline.
Otherwise, the re-upload process is the same as the upload process.
