Lumion also crashed on my pc with the .dae example provided.
I could however import it into Max.
Have a go at the attached file, see if it's better.
It's Open Collada, exported with Max2011 and it does import into Lumion.
As for the chimney and the roof:
There is a multi material assigned to them which makes for triple or more material ID's per component.
You need to clean this up.
Make sure every component that needs a seperate texture, has a unique material ID.
Should take care of the remaining issues.
the DAE file you attached works a lot better than the fbx. I do not work at all in 3d max, I just used to transfer my revit file to Lumion so I am a little clueless with 3d max interface. Did you just save the fbx or collada file that I attached and save it as collada in 3d max 2011? So you think that it is better to use collada than fbx?
Are there different files for collada dae : "Autodesk Collada," and "Open Collada"
Revit uses different materials or layer in certain components i.e : roofs have different layers with assign materials, so in order to eliminate that multi materials do i have to change my model in Revit, is there a way to change it easy and fast in 3d max? in the new collada file that you made I was able to select the roof, did you modify it or It was the 2011 collada file that was not interfering with Lumion?
Thank you for your help and patience, since I am a new bee in the 3d max world. But all the sugestions are really helpful. I wish one day i can import my models with all my materials assign, it will be perfect!!
