    What does 100 materials mean? I uploaded 9 objects and 1 material with 5 texture sheets, and it appear white only.

    @HardSurface3D - Happy to help although looking at your Models page, it seems everything has been textured properly. For future reference, materials are an enhancement of texture mapping for 3D modeling. Often, models with 100 materials are quite complex and colorful.

    @Dan Hi Dan,

     

    Yes. Sketchfab was automatically set emission to the material, that was what made the model look white only.

    Hello, I'm trying to import models and so far I'm using 2 ways. I'm trying with the plug in for 3D Studio Max but everything I import results without texture but if the same object I export from 3D Studio to .3DS format and upload it works, the only thing I found is that if I used a texture in a material from a bitmap I had to upload this picture manually otherwise the material was white. What I also found out using the plug in that I had to choose a different rendering option. So what is the easyest way to import objects here including textures? May be .OBJ file with the texture file included?

    Purchased a model via Sketchfab, yet it uploads white. Why sell models that you can't handle upon upload? Help?

    @envirosolar It sounds like the model you purchased might include a texture file. If you don't attach it, it's possible for your model to appear white, texture-less too. If you're still having trouble, could you reach out to our team directly: https://help.sketchfab.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    I have tried using the 3ds max plugin, as I was facing missing material problem on sketchfab. But even after using that the material looks white? what could be the reason?
