Photoshop: 3D PDF export is having weird mesh issues.

So, I composed a 3d billboard for our client.



Awesome!
So then I went to export the file as a 3D PDF



Clearly, something isn't right there, so I try the ol' u3d and open that in acrobat.



Still no good. If this a known issue? Is there a work around or fix coming? The amount of time I could save by being able to send a pdf to the client that they can see from all angles would be huge, not to mention they'd be impressed.

Thanks.

Would it be possible to get a copy of the file you're having trouble with?

We are looking into the issue as I type this. The Engineers are also requesting the original textures for the file too. Could you please provide those as well?

Thank you

Thanks for the response. If I'm understanding your question properly, then those are the original textures embedded in the file.

Meaning, I recieved multi layered art from a vendor. I merged their layers into the individual pieces I would use to render the object, brought that art into my 3d billboard template, then did an extrusion on each piece of art to create each plane of the billboard.

So the front inflation material is the original art (so to speak).

Does that make sense?

I just tried exporting a 3d pdf of another model I did for another project and it has the same problem. Constructed the same way, merge supplied art into the layers I want to have in the display, and then extruding them.

File is available here.

Does that help? Please let me know if there's anything else I can provide and I will if I can, I'm dying to get this to work!

Thank you for the try again. Sorry if I was not clear.

This is another 3d PSD. What I would like to get are the textures before they added them to the PSD. Let me know if you have them.

Here are the regular textures on their own.

Sorry about the confusion.

Hi Evan,

I may have found a workaround to this issue.

1. Open the file
2. 3D Menu > Unify Scene for 3D Printing > this will generate new UVs and consolidate Materials.
3. Export PDF > I used default settings

Let me know if this works and you may contact me directly daniel at adobe dot com

*I just noticed a few artifacts on Bobs fingers... so its not solved yet. But at least looks better > I'll keep looking at this and please feel free to contact me and we can continue working offline.
