I am looking for instructions on how to enter a model I have created onto my layout. The model is in the .x format. Unfortunately I do not speak German. Help would be appreciated. Regards Bev

Hello Bev,

to upload an x-format model into the train studio realize the following steps:

  1. Select from the menu line "Catalog - 3D models - New"
  2. The "3D model setup" window gets opened.
    Click to the "3D model" selection button, so that you can choose the type of the model to be uploaded. You can select between the following model types:
    - 3D model (simple model like a building)
    - Barrier (implies an animation for opening/closing the barrier)
    - Controller (may be analogous or digital)
    - Particle system (has different proprties to set)
    - Signal (implies an animation for setting different states)
    - Track/Street (uploading a track or street basic model for creation of tracks/streets along splines)
    - Vehicle (locomotives, waggons, automobiles, ships, walking persons, ...)
  3. After you have selected the model type:
    Select the "variations" tab and click to the "+" button.
    Now, you can select the x-file to be uploaded.
  4. Depending on the model type, you can selet further tabs to complete the settings for your model.
  5. Click to the save button below the model picture.
  6. Select the category within the "My 3D models" part of the online catalog and
    finally save your model in the train studio.

Before you can upload the x-file to the train studio:

  • Make sure, that all materials to be used by the x-file are located within the same windows directory as the x-file.
  • The dimensions of the texture pictures to be used from the x-file must be twofold powers, i.e. the side lengths must be 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64,128, 256, 512, 1024 or 2048 pixels, height and width may be different.

Many greetings

Hi Bev,

i made a simple example (signal with 4 states "off, "red", "yellow", "green")

... export animation in Blender...
Bild01.jpg.3916773bc0fb3063a760ab4a94fe0534.jpg

... with a text-editor write this line "_AnimSignal;0;3" and save the file as .anim. (It must have the same name as the signal und must be in the same folder)
(... because it is only the show different colors every signal state is one frame)

Note: the animation in Blender should start with frame "0"

... import the model to 3D TS (see BahnLand) and define it as "Signal"...

... define the signal states...

... and save the model.

This is the result....

in the .zip file is the .blend, the .anim and the . x file (and the texture)...

signal.zip

Hi,

... this are my "normal" defininitions (object names) in the Blender model...
Bild1001.jpg.da43799ad6a5b0c2003d08edc4e9785c.jpg

 ... to make an object "shineing" in the dark you can set the prefix "_LS" or "_LC" to the object name in Blender...

... following pictures show the difference in the restul in 3D TS...

Hi Easy

Many thanks for your help. I am not used to using Blender- I have always used Sketchup before. I regret that at my age(74) my rate of learning is very slow ,but I get there in the end

Regards Bev

Hello Bev,

it is also possible with Sketchup to create highlighted objects:

Select the parts of your model which should be illuminated. Make a "group" of them and give this group an name beginning with "_LS". That's all.

After you have created the x-file from your Sketchup model and uploaded this x-file to the Train Studio, the part of your model, which is grouped with an _LS name, will be shown as illiuminated, while the other parts of your model will remain non-illuminated.

You can also define several groups within your Sketchup model, which should be illuminated. Give them all different names all beginning with "_LS".

If you use "_LC" as predfix instead of "_LS", you get the effect shown in the picture of EASY's comment above.

Many greetings
BahnLand
