I'm trying to get QGIS to load a 3D model made in sketchup, as seen here: enter image description here

However, the model is not loading in the QGIS 3D Viewer. Any suggestions? QGIS does not give any input on what type of file they're looking for.

Good question - I have luck with the .obj format. Try the beachball here: https://free3d.com/3d-model/beach-ball-v2--259926.html.

  • The beachball works, thanks! Any idea how I might get this dae file working?
