problem converting cad model

March 6, 2018 - 4:24am #1

Hi,

 

i am using the model target generator. Everytime i want to import my model i get the error: "There was a problem converting your CAD Model"

- i tested formats like obj, fbx, dae, vrml2, stl

- the object has 100k triangles

-a texture with 2048x2048

-i executed the Software as administrator and with compatibility mode Windows 7

- i am using windows 10

 

nothing worked - hope you can help me

i cant upload the model because of rights but maybe i can send it to you?

 

thank you

Philipp

Hello @JonBarrow,

Unfortunately, it looks like I spoke too soon. The fix specific to your issue had to be reverted due to unexpected impacts to adjacent features.

Current workaround suggestion is to first convert the model to FBX or GLTF (with Maya or even Blender) and then attempt to import into the Model Target Generator. Blender has a good Collada import function, and the GLTF 2.0 export from Blender also works well.

Apologies for the confusion.

Thanks,

Hello @JonBarrow,

The team has finally resolved this issue with importing this file into the Model Target Generator. A fix will be coming in our upcoming Engine SDK release, expected before the end of the year.

Thank you for your patience, and apologies for the inconvenience.

Hello,

Unfortunately, no updates for this particular 3D model import issue - it looks like other Colada files are working.

We are trying to get a fix in for our next release, but reviewing the comments it seems there are additional dependencies that are blocking a resolution. Thus, it may not make it and will have to wait for our next commercial release.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks,

Vuforia Engine Support

Hello @JonBarrow,

I was able to recreate the issue using MTG 8.3.8 on Windows 10. I'll open a ticket for additional investigation and update this thread with any relevant findings.

Thanks,

I'm receiving the same error (Windows 7 and MTG v8.3.8) when attempting to convert the model available here (I chose the colada download option). It's under 400,000 polygons and seems to meet the requirements.

Windows 10. Model in OBJ and BFX. I tried many different models, none of them works. What is the problem?

  • Which version of the Model Targets Generator?
  • Which version of the Vuforia Engine SDK?
  • Which version of the Unity Editor?

Also, if you can share your models we can attempt to replicate.

Thanks,

Vuforia Engine Support
