3DPDF embedded images and file size

Post by MarcosCalderon » Mon Jul 09, 2018 5:28 pm

Maybe I'm not understanding something, but it seems that the exported 3Dpdf size grows much more than the added data to the Simlab scene:

After importing a simple 3D object (32K .fbx) with two 1K texture bitmaps (270K + 54K .jpg), less than 400K in total. But the exported 3DPDF file increases in 1.5 MB :shock:

I've tried to check and uncheck 'preserve images original resolution', it makes no difference.

Has anybody else experienced something similar?

Two things to consider.

1- How about the template file you used? it may include some images that adds to the size.
2- File presentations are not the same, FBX may include some analytical information that need to be tessellated (converted to polygons in 3D PDF) this may cause the file size to increase.
