Importing 3D Models From AutoCAD

Scanifly works best with 3D models from SketchUp. If you do not have access to SketchUp, please let us know and we will do our best to work with you on a solution.

Simple Models Work Best

When it comes to importing 3D models, please try not to overcomplicate your design. It is best to use basic geometry. Additionally, it is best to use basic colors instead of textures.
