Imported Cad image sinks halfway down the platform?

Postby daffnersr » Fri Jan 26, 2018 6:56 am

I'm new to 3D rendering but not to CAD designing and I can't figure out why images I import to Luxrender 1.6.0 only show halfway? I provided an example screen shot, now I have no problem importing the same image to Blender (2.79), I get the whole image to fit in the plot area, I am beside myself, what am I doing wrong...Please help :)

Thanks Dave :)

Can you show how it should look like, e.g. a screenshot of a wireframe/OpenGL shaded viewport?
It seems like you have a ground plane with a metal material.

Thank you for your reply, sure I'll show you what it looks like in FreeCad.

that's most likely a glossy ground plane intersecting the CAD object
check if any extra geometry is there and delete it... or attach your file for fixing ;)

BTW: Check in your app if there's a hidden layer or some setting for the ground.

I owe you biggggg...Time! Thanks so much :) This was just one of 10 other parts, so now when I really get the hang of this, I can assemble everything and make a far better presentation :)

Again, thank you!
