Format Notes:

  • SKP imports from SketchUp will include colors and models only, and exclude materials in Augment3d versions prior to 1.2.1 (Eos 3.1.1)
    • Objects will be imported single sided unless you assign the back a non-default material.
  • DXF files may not include material data.
  • glTF and glTF v2 .GLTF files usually require an additional .BIN file for geometry data in the same location as the .GLTF file for import.
  • .OBJ files require a .MTL file to define materials. If it is not present, the default material will be used instead
