3d imported Furniture

Recommended Posts

Good Day/Evening all!!

 

So, I know we all love to use the 3dwarehouse from sketchup and it's great, but sometimes you just can't find what you're looking for, not to mention creating a custom piece of furniture isn't always something you have time for.  

 

I ran into the following, found a website :

https://3darch.org/3dmodel/contemporary-armchair-01-970 (example model)

 

https://3darch.org/3dmodel/leather-sofa-cl03-979 (couch i wanted)

I downloaded a couch, imported, well first of all it only had one material, meaning the leather and feet didn't have separate material options, second of all it had like 329,000 faces (I know on the chief website it says the more faces the worse it gets)

 

My problem is once I imported and assigned a material to it, the couch was so amazing that in plain 3d view it looked like it had gone through ray trace all too well, BUT the system slowed the hell down like no other (I know faces).

 

So I guess have a few questions,

 

1) Can I somehow modify these objects to have less faces and so they don't slow down the program to the point of URGHHH GRR?
2) If I can't, does anybody else know of any other great websites that have good furniture databases that are easy to import and good in detail?

The brown couch comes out looking almost the same in 3d view. (couch is 48mb in size)

 

Thanks for any and all help ahead of time!

I downloaded your Carlton object and could not see any difference in camera view or in a Raytrace response time. I duplicated it 6 times just to increase the faces and still did not notice any problems. Here's my quick Raytrace, 20 passes in 3 minutes, 9 seconds per pass.

I think the couch is the problem and that symbol isn't uploaded. There are some free mesh reducers out there. I used one once on some furniture-have to experiment to find a balance between faces and looks. Don't remember which I used-not loaded on this machine-might have been meshlab.

Thekitchenadobe:

Thank you for your quick response, Marcmc is right, it's the couch that's the problem and I couldn't upload it due to size, if you can be bothered to use the link I provided and download it and see what happens?

Also can you let me know when you imported which parameters did you change in advanced under interior fixture to make it stand right because I had issues having the object and it's box being one in the same etc, thanks!

Marcmc: I'll try looking for the program and IF i find it and make it work I'll let you know!

 Once I imported it into the library I opened up the Symbol DBX and rotated the X axis to flip it upright.

Chopsaw thanks for the link I'll definitely give it a try and let you know what came out of it!

 

Graham:  I also flipped it, what I wanted to ask if any recommendation on what cloud site to use to give you guys access to the couch and it's file?  because for example as said the object properties say it has one material when in reality it should be split up into frame, legs, main couch cushions etc, and how I could apply each given material?

limitless,  Have you tried to compress the file by zipping?  If that does not work I use Microsoft OneDrive  https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-ca/ and they still have 5 GB of free storage and file sharing.  There are also many other cloud services available.

 here is the link for the couch, if anybody can take a look and see what can be done I would be really grateful.  (Forgot I have 105gb of storage with onedrive)

Here you go Limitless, it's still a bit of a beast for CA, but I started to lose geometry going any smaller using MooTools Polygon Cruncher.  I converted to skp out of MooTools, then ran CleanUp in SketchUp 2017.  I did not set texture UVs, so only single color textures will look good.

      Hi everyone! I am new to Chief and a student of Environmental Design. I just downloaded the student version a few weeks ago and have only had little time to familiarize myself with it. I downloaded a bunch of catalogs basically almost every single one is downloaded. This summer I am taking Kitchen & Bath Design. We are 5 weeks into the semester and so far I had hand rendered everything. But, everyone else in my class is using chief. Their plans, 3D's and elevations look so good. That is something that even if you are the best at hand rendering a 3D plan just looks more real in chief. So, I started really messing with it last week. I want to at least be able to present one of my rooms on Chief. So far I have half way finished my first floor plan. I have the walls finished and was adding my fixtures. I have the toilet and tub. But, my issue is I was looking for a vanity that was at least close to the one I have picked out for my design. I cant find one. There doesn't seem to be many options on vanities. But maybe I'm just not looking in the right place. My main question though is can we upload a picture or the vanity or add it into the catalog somehow so I will have the exact vanity I have used in all my hand rendered drawings? I just do not know what to do at this point and help would be appreciated! I am basically teaching myself how to do all this.

      I successfully imported the floor plan for a house from a dwg file, however I have not found a way to convert the roof drawing into 3D. Is there a way to do that? I am using the X11 version.
