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"

Importing (Multiple Material Issue)

I am trying to import an OBJ from Windows 3D Builder to Unreal Engine 4.15. The OBJ has multiple surfaces with more than one material. However, when I import the OBJ, it always assembles the entire OBJ as one. The OBJ multiple surfaces are replaced with one surface only, and the same happens with the materials. Is there any away I can opt to fill each face of the object separately? Please be detailed…use visuals if necessary. alt text

Product Version: UE 4.15

Already tried FBX. Unfortunately, it had the same results.
