3D Warehouse starting to mess with some uploaded models

bug

#1

New to this forum.

This topic has to do with 3D Warehouse. It’s a technical problem.

I have noticed that models that were uploaded to Sketchup, mainly old ones that were made somewhere from 2009-2011 started to look seriously messed up! I don’t know if this is the sites fault, but before I’ve noticed this issue, the models I saw from this user for example: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/user.html?id=0152269127601381790113492 was fine, until I checked today and noticed some of his models looked messy! Models unsoften and wrong colors! Is this a bug? Is it possible for the people running this site to fix this?

Here’s an example of this user’s Rolls Royce model that I have saved up in my computer as when I dl’d it sometime ago.


This is the same model currently up on the 3D warehouse. Keep in mind that this user hasn’t touch his account since around 2014-2015. This model was updated sometime in 2014, and I’ve noticed it got messed up for some reason.


Basic self paced tutorials broken?

Yes. Bugs filed. We had a big re-render of all models going on, and on some older models (SketchUp 5, 6, 7) it would use a .kmz to render instead of the .skp file. This resulted in some ugly stuff. We’ve stopped the re-render, and we’re going to restore the models. So hang tight. I’ll let you know when we get things fixed.


#3

Please do it as soon as possible!


#4

This is easily fixed. Anyone can still download the model and click Edit > Select All. Then click Window > Soften Edges. Make sure to tick the “Soften coplanar” checkbox. This procedure should correct the problem.


#5

@Barry is this related to what has happened to the Self Paced Tutorials and DC Function Examples?


#6

Yes, this could affect DC’s and Scenes. We’re working on the fix in the next 48-72 hours.


#7

Even so, you still have to deal with the mis-colorization of the model.


#8

After reading your initial post, I dl’d the file to satisfy my own curiosity and performed a quick edit including sampling the color from the hood and effected those modifications I suggested in my prior post. Completing my edit session took me about 60 seconds. Here is the result: RollsRoyceGhost.skp (2.4 MB)


#9

Well? I still don’t see any changes. I hope the re-render issue doesn’t permanently screw up the older models.

God I just can’t stand looking at all these ugly screwed up models!


#10

Here is a screenshot of the model. Doesn’t appear either ugly or screwed up to me. Maybe you need to check your graphics drivers.


#11

No, I mean in the 3D Warehouse site.


#12

Well, it’s not 72 hours yet, is it?


#13

I don’t know, but sheesh I just can’t stand looking at these ugly screw ups anymore!

Here’s the Friday afternoon update: we have the files, and will restore them, and the solution we’ve selected on a small scale worked. Now we’re just deciding when to pull the trigger to fire this off, because we want to be 100% sure it works exactly as expected. I’ll post here when we’ve walked through the affected models so you can check them.


#15

That’s easier said than done when there’s about OVER 9000 models dating from 2009-2011!


#16


Still seeing bad 3D models.

Was this caused by the re-render issue? This model is completely ruined!


#18

I think ruined is somewhat excessive a term to be used in connection with this issue. These models only requiire a modicum of attention to be perfectly usable. Just soften them based on the information l provided in a previous post.

Here is one of the models shown earlier after having been softened:
Pontiac GTO 1965-11soft.skp (2.8 MB)
Admittedly, some of them require more attention than others, such as the model of the Toyota truck.


#19

You don’t have to do anything but sit tight: we are fixing all affected models, and ruined is not accurate, unless you claim it’s a miracle when they’re fixed and send your life savings to us out of gratitude.


#20

Yes, it appears that model was a part of this. I’ll post when the restoring of these models has started.
