Tutorial | Center the Model axes with Blender

Sometimes is it possible, that a 3D-Model not correct rotate or the “rotation point” are far away outside of it is (Every Model has its own origin with axis for the rotation, mostly “inside” his geometry). In this little tutorial show we how to set the Model origin and solve the problem with a wrong rotation.

 

After loading your Model, right click on your Model, to select it.

center a model 1.

And than select on the left side menu: “Set origin / Origin to geometry”

center a model 2.

Also you can set a individuel orgin when you place the 3D-Cursor. So after loading your Model, right click on your Model, to select it. Than set the 3D-Cursor with a left click, rotate the scene and look around your Model.

If the 3D-Cursor on the right position, select on the left side menu:
“Set origin / Origin to 3D-Cursor.”

center a model 4.

Tutorial | Shrink 3D-Model data with Blender

If you show 3D-Models in your website, it’s important that this will load quickly in the Browser, but most 3D-Models have many megabytes of data.

The data from 3D-Models are basically points and lines. The points determine this precise position in a 3D-Space and the lines connecting these points to surfaces.

A rounded- or complex 3D-Model needs many “points and lines”, however with a good 3D-Software can you some of this connections delete, without deteriorating the quality and thereby reduce the data size of this model.

That’s how the Remesh-Modfier works in Blender:

Import you 3D-Model:

  • Click left top on “file”.
  • Move the mouse down and select: Import.
  • After loading, right click on you 3D-Model in the Blender window.

Select on the right top little toolbar the wrench-icon:

  • Click on “Add Modfier” and select: Remesh.
  • Play a bit with the functions in the Remesh-Panel and see the result in the 3D-Window.
  • When your Model is ready, click on Apply and export it.

Important: Do not set the “Octree Depth” higher than 7 or 8 (This used many calculating time of your PC!).

Use Blender for your 3D-Model and show it in Canvasio3D and WordPress

Why we recommend Blender

Blender is a free open source 3D-Program for beginner and also for professionals. We use this program for testing 3D-Models and also for tutorials in the future, in there we will show, how you can editing and optimizing your 3D-Model, to use it in Canvasio3D.

Blender is for beginner not easy to use. But when you understand how blender works, then it’s a great and intuitive 3D-Program.
