Hi, I’m new here and Blender as well.
I’m making a scene and I have some doubts. I’ve downloaded several models from the 3D warehouse sketch up that I put in my scene.
After I convert these files into a .blend I use the “append or link” in my scene and for some there is not too much problem, just go to the folder object model to import and select the only mesh there. But in other more complex models, there are a lot of meshes and I can not import it so easily.
I thought to do a join (ctrl + j) in the original model file to see if all objets are merged into one and got the unique file object, but no way, is there any other way? How well I can put those models in my scene? Blender says “these objet type doen´t support joining”
The other question is about the textures. Models that I downloaded (COLLADA (. dae)) are textured, but when I import the .blend I lost, almost always, the textures. Those are found in a separate folder (images) of the file I download from the 3d warehouse.
