    • OBJ
    • 3D PDF
 
Note: The file format DXF (polylines) contains all the triangles of the mesh as a list of polygons. It is recommended to use the DXF (polylines) format for CAD and GIS software.

7. (optional) If the OBJ format is selected, select Tiled Texture to tile the texture file of the OBJ file. 
8. (optional) If the 3D PDF format is selected, select the Logo that is embedded in the 3D PDF. The logo can be imported in .jpeg or .tiff format.
9. Select Generate LOD Mesh and Export to export the multi-LOD mesh.
10. Select the LOD settings:

  • Number of Levels
  • Texture Quality
  • Export format:
    • SLPK
    • OSGB

11. Click Browse...  to navigate to the path where the textured mesh is saved.
12. On File name, type the desired file name.
