Problem importing more than one 3D Model

Hello,

I am trying to import four 3d models that I created, into a scene.

They are .obj files.

I'll import the first one, then use the F key to fit it to the scene.

When I import the second one, then press the F key, the first one disappears. I think it is still in the scene somewhere, but I can't find it.

How can I import and fit more than one 3D model into a scene?

Thanks everyone!

"F" is frame selection so you can use it to frame your currently selected objects. With one object selected the 3D view will move to place that object center With more than one object selected the 3D view will move so all selected objects are centered With nothing selected the 3D view will move to place all objects in viewYou can also use Cmd or Ctrl + 0 to "frame all".

the f key is focus... not fit to screen

I would import the biggest 3d model first (press F) then save that spot so you can come back to it and 4 3d models will crash Dimenson in most Macs so you may want to rendor after adding each model in

p.s, try this trick; import all models (shift + select them all and group them) then press F... I still assume you have at least one model inside another but you should be able to see all of the scene now

  • With one object selected the 3D view will move to place that object center
