3D PDF not all materials render

Postby vamtastic » Tue May 31, 2016 9:11 pm

Hi,
I am exporting a 3D PDF, and not all the materials render. I assume it is a problem where I have painted the components that have a "default" colour, and the rendering shows the "default colour rather than the material painted to them.
Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks,
Vivek

I am having the same problem as vamstastic. I am using SketchUp Make 2017 and the 3D PDF Exporter. When I export my model to PDF, no textures (or materials like concrete, landscaping, etc.) appear in the model. They appear as gray/white. If If I export a model with solid colors and textures, the solid colors appear in the 3D PDF, but again, no textures. What gives?

I attached a simple SketchUp model I tried exporting and had this problem.

We will check the issue.

I just did a quick test with SimLab Composer and it was able to import the SKP file and export the 3D PDF file without an issue, so this can be a workaround until we check those models with the plugin.

Hi,

I have downloaded the trial version -I am trying to render a jpg image onto a surface and print as a 3d pdf but its not working. Searching the web I found this forum.

I also downloaded the test sample above and tis does not work either - I just get a box with out the texture...
Is there some other settings?

I'd be happy to purchase if this worked....

Did you open the generated file with the free Acrobat reader?

You need to open with the Acrobat reader, it should work.

Can you share the generated PDF file ?
