Trouble with applying a material

Hi everyone!
This is my first post, I hope it’s in the right place…

I’m a freelance web developer and work with Solidworks Sell most of the time. Now I’m discovering playcanvas and trying several things!

I have trouble applying a material on a model and I can’t find what I’m doing wrong.

Here is my project :
I have 2 knifes:
The upper one comes from a free 3D blender models database, that I exported in PC as a FBX file.
The lower one comes from Solidworks Sell, exported from SW and imported in PC as a OBJ file.

I can apply my material on the blender model without any trouble, but the SW model is white!

Any ideas? :smiley:
Thanks in advance!

Hi @TonyLGC and welcome,

So I think your second mesh is missing texture coordinates (UV coordinates). Make sure you properly unwrap each mesh in Blender before exporting it to FBX.

That will solve your issue.


Hi @Leonidas!

Thanks for the help!
I’ve remeshed and tried to unwrap the handle, I made some progress :slight_smile:


I’m way more a developer than a 3D designer, so now I’ve to explore all these functions haha
