Export Files in FBX format (100mb recommended for iPad and 50mb for iPhones)
ARki uses FBX format which is compatible with most 3d Software Packages.
Below is a list of supported Softwares with FBX and how you can import them into ARki with textures.
For the best export settings please embed all textures and flip YZ axis where possible.
FBX Export from Sketchup into ARki
** please note for Sketchup the FBX needs to be in a ZIP file with the textures so that the app can read the textures.

Check FBX model using Autodesk FBX Viewer
You can check the FBX model using an independent software to ensure the model is exported as desired. We recommend Autodesk Viewer for easy uploading and viewing files incase you are having issues with your FBX Files.
Convert to FBX using Autodesk convertor
If your software does not support FBX, you can use FBX convertor below to convert files. This can also be used for softwares which do not support new versions of FBX, especially Sketchup, and Autodesk.
