Import DXF problem ( beginner )
show user profile  archimodeller
Hi All !
I have imported a dxf file ( an export from sketch up ) and it comes
with surfaces, lines etc. A problem occurs when applying Materials to
the model.The Model does not render the material properly. When I
put a box next to it, created in 3ds, it renders fine so it isn t the settings
in the materials window.
Does anyone know about this problem ?
Thanks a lot for any help.

try making the material double sided. might be (probably) flipped normals.

Either that or more likely the imported objects haven't got any mapping coordinates. Try mapping the objects by adding a uvwmap modifier
