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"

Export from 3ds Max to UE4 Failed

I have a project modeled on Rhino and import in 3ds Max as default .dwg format. There are several blocks included on rhino such as windows, handrails, structures elements, etc. Once on 3ds max converted into a mesh I started to unwrapping object by object. The problem came when I started to export these objects to .FBX format. The folder where I export the .fbx files is empty. I don´t know whether is a FBX esport x-cript, a rhino model issuu or I´m doing something wrong on 3ds max.

Product Version: UE 4.12

Okay, so you can't find them when you try to import them into UE4? Or the files are not in the folder after exporting them from 3ds Max? :)

Its working now. It was a matter of wrong naming layers. When I export from rhino to 3dsmax the name of the layers change by default. e.g. AR-Wall is renamed as "Layer:ARCHITECTURE_$AR-Wall". If I erase "Layer:ARCHITECTURE_$" I can export the model perfectly. Thanks for the tip.

The files are not in the folder. I've tried to drop them on the desktop and any others folders but only appear a empty flie named Block. There is no any fbx.

Hmm..that's weird. So it's not 3ds Max. It creates the file but it doesn't save them as an FBX file?

Let's do some testing.

Can you try to export the block as an OBJ file. :)
