The layers

Manual screen

Check the model for correctness of its construction.

Make sure that the correct areas of the model have been joined and the surfaces are divided and grouped as intended.

Limit the number of model layers by dividing individual parts according to the assigned textures, or keep the model on one layer by dividing the texturing areas.

If you leave more than one layer in the model, make sure each layer has a different name.

Avoid sublayers to simplify structure.

Clean up the scene from duplicate and unnecessary objects

  • surface
  • edges
