How to judge the perfectness and usefulness of a model uploaded to 3D warehouse
3D warehouse is a huge respiratory of 3d models which facilitate the users to explore, upload, download and share these models.
The modelers from all through the globe can upload their project inside sketchup as well as upload .skp or .kmz files through the 3d warehouse cloud based website. Individual models are viewed in 3D on the web via a upgraded internet browser having compatibility with WebGL, or the SketchUp Mobile Viewer application well versed with iPad gadgets.
Presently 3d warehouse contains several models uploaded by manufacturers. So, manufacturers have started to create the .SKP version of their product catalog. But the question is what should be the criteria for judging the perfectness as well as usefulness in design process of a 3d warehouse’s model?
There exists a ‘3D Warehouse Content Developer’ network that helps manufacturer to hire service partners to acquire their products modeled and publish to 3D Warehouse via SketchUp experts.
The following points are important to judge the perfectness and usefulness of a model uploaded to 3D warehouse:-
- Exact, useful and logical file name
- Proper, useful and logical components
- The insertion point is proper
- The axis is accurate
- Minimum complex geometry
- Minimum material image size
- No layers/section planes/guides/geo-location/stray geometry
- The right template is selected
- The units are acceptable
- Least group nesting
- The labels are implied properly and comprehensive as well as the leader lines are precise
- The file is properly arranged in the order of groups and components and layers
- For a Dynamic Component, it should have functional options observable to the user and the accurate logo, if relevant
- Model credits are useful
- Face orientation is proper
- Textures are aptly used and aren’t excessively outsized
- File size is appropriate.
- ‘Purge unused’ is turned on before uploading to keep away from irrelevant textures and geometry
- The LOD (level of detail) is accurate for its use case
- The scale is exact for the type of object
