Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

UE4 crashes when importing staticmesh from 3ds max

I have two quite similar meshes that i need to import from 3ds max to UE4. Its two "pipes", one T pipe and one with one more exit, a 4 pipe (like a + if you will). The T pipe imports fine, but the + pipe makes UE4 crash. I have no clue what the reason could be and its driving me mad

here are both the meshes: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ba5lwfrkrfh0vpy/AAApE8hKZXjOCguaZpBTirXPa?dl=0 (uvw's are only a test and they are crap)

Thanks! :)

Hey Stetsix,

I was able to import both meshes you provided without any problems occurring. I tested it in the 4.6 preview as well as 4.5.1. Which version of the engine are you running?

A couple of things you could try which might resolve your issue. Try renaming your .fbx files to something like "FourPipe" and "ThreePipe" to get rid of any spaces or unique characters. Also try polishing up the UV's of your meshes as well. If neither of these suggestions work, let me know and I will assist further.
