  • Size of a model shouldn’t exceed 10x10x10 meters

  • The number of polygons shouldn’t exceed 20000 per model, low-poly models are recommended (2000-5000 polygons per model)


2. Preparing a Model

  1. The model should only contain the structure of the product itself, and should not contain irrelevant content like another products, rooms, lighting and other

  2. Don’t create invisible structures inside the model.
