Author Topic: Different Symetrie-Axis OBJ/FBX  (Read 1026 times)


I saw, there is a difference with activating symetry-option in SP, when dealing with fbx or obj.

For obj, "Z" axis is offest form the center (see images below), the same model as fbx does have it centered (!)

Both models got the same base (everything centered, frozen and "zeroed out", also tri-angulated in 3D app, MODO 10 indie)
just saved in different format.

Why is there a difference in axis-geometry???

My guess is that when exporting in FBX, there are still some transformation saved in the file, which we end-up correcting manually when importing the mesh. While in obj, this kind of transformation is not supported by the format.

Could you attach the fbx file ?
