Photograph textures distorted – SketchUp

Hello everybody. I’m having points with Exporting a Sketchup obj textured with a Photograph texture (2048×2048, holding to the ability of two ) picture. quickly as I export the picture from Sketchup utilizing Sketchup2xplane after which take a look at the OBJ within the WED preview window the place of the feel texture appears totally different as in it strikes, kinda distorted. When firing up X-plane it appears because it did in WED.
Have included 2 pictures. Can anybody make clear this please.
That is simply an experimental obj therefore why not fancy.
Many thanks


I had not heard of WED! Downloaded it to present it a strive, and can see if I get the identical distortion.

Are you able to share your take a look at file? In any other case the perfect we will do is guess…

Certain. What’s a take a look at file, ?.

The file you simply used to check this… the file that you simply confirmed footage of… are you able to share that file? The .skp?

opethis helps.

Appears to be like to me as if the distortion you’re seeing matches the unique picture you imported. That is what the unique picture appears like.

You may apply some correction in an exterior picture editor earlier than importing it to make use of as a texture in your mannequin.

Thanks Dave, however the second picture i dowloaded (search for just a few feedback), exhibits the Picture completely totally different in WED after which in x-plane 11. The picture appears completely totally different, thats what I imply by dostorted. I perhaps by no means defined myself very nicely ,:(. I assumed the photograph texture placed on the face would then be precisely the identical in x-plane. John

Add your authentic picture.

Right this moment was dearer than I deliberate. I attempted the WED app, however couldn’t determine it out. So I purchased X-Airplane. I occurred to try this on maybe the day they launched X-Airplane 12. I’m in contact with their help to see whether or not me shopping for v11 after v12 was launch, offers me v12, or a minimum of if I pays the distinction between the outdated value and the brand new value. Can be a disgrace to pay $30 for a model that has been outmoded, then pay $60 to get the present model!

I didn’t but work out find out how to load a mannequin into X-Airplane. I don’t thoughts for those who x-plane that to me!

Sketchup exports the skp file by means of sketchup2xplane Extension as a obj file. That then is copied into the customized surroundings airport folder that you simply need to open up obj. Then in WED open up the native obj on left and place obj in airport by choosing obj file you positioned in cust surroundings airport folder. Then underneath file, save- then examine x-plane model underneath file, then lastly underneath file choose export x-plane or phrases to that impact. Run x-plane and obj ought to open simply because it was textured in Sketchup though in my case it doesnt. Recognize you going further mile to assist.

Thanks, I’ll attempt to comply with your instructions.

I occur to stay proper subsequent door to Boulder airport, and see within the system that just one individuals has tried so as to add that. I flew into the airport in v11, and a few issues appear not proper! Can be good if I might replace it utilizing SketchUp.

Did you get anyplace Aaron (theonlyAaron) with information I despatched you. ?

Be more than pleased that will help you Dave in case your caught. Im not an knowledgeable by any means hencec why I’m having difficuilty, but when I can I’ll


Are you aware find out how to unzip a file? Proper click on on file > Extract Right here
Unzip this file ( after which import ‘window (2).obj’ into your WED and see if the feel is OK. (184.3 KB)

I examined the .OBJ file by importing it into Blender, and the feel shouldn’t be distorted.

I exported the .OBJ file from SketchUp Make 2017

You shared a .SKP file and a .DAE file, however you have been speaking concerning the want for an .OBJ file. Are you really attempting to import a .DAE file?

Thanks for that Mihai.s. Sure to unzipping so will go & strive your file, Iam utilizing 2017 in order that’s all good. As for the Dae file, wasn’t certain what that was. If ithe su2017 file works for me will I have the ability to evaluate the 2files & see the place I’m going fallacious ?.
Get again to you.
