xyz problem for imported fbx

Recommended Posts

Imported an fbx (attached) and i get the wrong behaviour of the dopnetwork with the xyz, gravity pushes the geometry to the side. Here is a visual description of the problem: any idea what the problem, how to fix it now, and how to avoid it in the future?

That is very strange behavior.  You can adjust the Orientation of the scene settings in the Houdini Preferences.  Edit--Preferences--3D Viewports--Orientation.  Make sure that Y up is the orientation. Also, there is a check box on the FBX import to "convert to y-up." Ensure that is turned on when you import.  :)

Both were already there (Y up in settings, and convert to y-up in import), any idea what else could be the problem? the model was made in 3ds Max (2013)

I attach all formats available:

Hut_2013.max

Hut_fbx.FBX

Hut_obj.obj

After importing .FBX it is good practice to create a geo node.  Inside your node place an object merge node and path it to your desired object.  Then set the transform parameter of the object merge to "into this object".  See attached example. This simulates gravity as expected.

Many thanks, it works.
