I have a client who has a 3D model in .DWG, but the original creator doesn't have time to make some changes and create renders... So i wanted just to import it, use some lightning and materials and render...
I tried to import the model using the "import drawing" option, but it imports just some random lines (probably because it expects a 2D drawing and not a 3D model).
I get better luck with importing as 3D Symbol, like a piece of furniture - I can see the model and even edit materials etc... BUT all curves are quite not curves, but just straight lines cut into pieces - and it looks terrible. When i converted the DWG to DXF, it didn't make a change, however converting to OBJ using export in Sketchup, everything looks normal. But after using this exported OBJ, it loses many details and all the interior is just one "surface" which means I can't edit materials... There might be an error in the Sketchup export, but therer is not much to set up and it ignores something during import.
Any tips on how to import the original DWG in Chief in better quality?
The left one is OBJ import (exported from Sketchup), right one is DWG right into Chief
