The main purpose of this competition is to create augmented reality applications from your 3d models. We ask again participants to send us optimized 3d models in the correct file formats (.3ds, .dae, .obj, Sketchup 2015).
We get hundreds of 3d models, and we do not have the opportunity to optimize it or convert it to the right format. It will take weeks and months.
There are 2 conditions for optimization: file size of the 3d model is not larger than 30 MB, however, if you use a lot of high-quality textures, the size can be larger.
The main condition is the number of polygons in the model. Optimum — no more than 100,000, an absolute maximum — 250,000 polygons.
There are many ways to optimize the 3d model, here are a few options:
- Optimize the modifier in 3ds Max
- How to reduce the number of 3D model polygons using 3DS Max
- Optimize the model in SketchUp
Correct and optimized 3d-models are necessary for us to create correct applications of augmented reality.
So, we give you extra time to optimize the models and save it in one of the correct file formats.
Deadline is extended — till December, 30th.
If you have already sent your work, check the number of polygons in the model. If something is wrong, do not worry, you can send correct file before the end of 2017.
