Example text

When we click on this button, we will improve Lumion's speed by removing or adding levels of detail to the terrain. The shortcut for this setting is F7.

Why? I cannot see my 3D model One reason this happens is because we modeled the building far away from the origin axis. To understand this, check out the next screenshot: As you can see, the building is distant from the origin axis and might be one of the reasons why we cannot see the 3D model inside Lumion. [ 26 ] Chapter 1 Solution When we import the 3D model into Lumion, Lumion uses the origin axis as the point to place the 3D model. So, if the building is not close to this point, it is normal to see that when we place the 3D model in Lumion, the building is not at the point where we placed it.

Chapter 1 Importing an external 3D model Importing a 3D model is really easy and straightforward. What we need to do is click on the Import menu, which can be found on the left-hand side, and then click on the Add a new model button, as shown on the following screenshot: This opens a Windows Explorer window where you can locate the folder that contains the 3D model and select it. After doing this, we need to give a name to the new 3D model and click on the Add to library button. Now, we are back to the Build mode, and we are controlling a yellow boundary box that represents the 3D model we just imported.
