Hello all,

I recently made this model of the Super Nintendo Star Fox Arwing model in sketchup, and then baked it in Blender.

When uploading the model, i did it in a zip format, with the obj, mtl, and then the png of the texture inside the zip. However, when uploaded, the model appeared to be white like this:

How do i add the textures so when the model is printed, the textures are on it?

Thanks,

~Tomix

Export to VRML or X3D format, I do not think shapeways reads texture information from OBJ files yet.

I can't speak for Blender but in ZBrush you have to assign a UV Map to your model and export as VRML with the texture. I'm sure it will be the same for Blender.

Edited to add: Also, I don't know what size your model is but I think you will have some serious thin wall issues getting this printed in FC Sandstone. Please check the material design requirements.

Thanks, the model is most likely not sturdy enough for sandstone anyway. I did reupload it using .x3d format, and for some reason it lost a few polygons when it imported. It also did not seem to render the baked texture map i gave it, so i will most likely just go with White strong and flexible as the material.
