Tips & tricks for importing models into Procreate

Hi

None of my models success for painting normally, always appear as pic attached, any idea?
Thanks

Hi @btd53 ,

Is that a model from the uMake library or something you imported from another source?

Thanks,

Yes, I modelled it within uMake, not import, actually, I found the models within uMake library works flawlessly.
So I’m curious if something done wrongly.

@btd53 thanks for the additional information.

Procreate 3D painting requires the model surfaces’ UV to be unwrapped. For most of the models we’re adding to uMake we’re making sure there’s a UV map.

At the moment, uMake doesn’t have a UV unwrapping tool, but there’s a workaround. Nomad Sculpt app has a cool and simple UV map tool that should work in most cases. This is where this feature is located in the Nomad app:

Let me know if this helps.

This method works with a newly created modal… the problematic one still encounter unexpected results.

And this unlikely works well for complicated modal. Just using a modal finished in Shapr3D, the UV unwrap function in Nomad is not enough to generate “clean” maps.

thanks

@btd53

In Nomad Sculpt, are you using the unwrap tool on all the geometry (all at once)? Because if you unwrap it one surface at a time, it produces better results (most times).

As for complex scenes/models - yes, you might need more advanced UV unwrap tools that focuses on preparing the 3D geometry for 3D painting.

Can you add more details about your workflow?

One by one in Nomad… anyway, redo the initial modal once, please check if I have done anything wrong in uMake, for example, you may noticed that the cup profile is joined by several curves, not sure if it is a wrong way to do the job.

Thanks

I don’t think you’ve done anything wrong - it’s just that 3D painting requires more work (UV mapping). Did you try to tap the ‘Delete UVs’ in Nomad and then Unwrap button?

Doesn’t work… may be Blender is a solution in this case, just checked a tutorial from Gravity Sketch iPad — LandingPad — Blender (UV unwrap, mark seam) — Procreate.

Not yet a total 3D solution in iPad.

Thanks
