1. System Info
2. My view in Dimension
3. The files I'm working with
4. What the model looks like if I use a different program.


I dont know what I'm not doing, but render preview doesnt change my view.  I have no clue how to apply the texture map files to the model, but I notice when I click somewhere in the model, different materials become highlighted in the materials panel on the right side of Dimension.  That tells me the materials are there in some way... but I dont know what's going on.

Anybody able to help me work with this file in Dimension?  Is this possible or do i have to go outside of CC to do anything with this model?

What is your main goal with this file? Was this file created in other 3d program, or you download it?

I used my drone to map the property and am now editing the model in various programs to remove vehicles that didnt map well (movement) or parts of the property that were too small to read from the drone (powerlines).

also, I should say, I'm working with this file in various programs to find the best way to do this given the size and "file structure", for lack of a better term.   I have CC.. so i thought, why not use dimension since I've already got it instead of trying out these other programs.  Right now, I am just working the file in Blender because I'm not really sure how to proceed with Dimension.

@USSNORWAY, I will check out that video. Thank you for your comment.  I need all the help I can get, haha.
