Step 3: Select the uploading method

You will now see the "Select uploading method" screen. Choose the appropriate option based on your needs:

a) Optimized digital twin model (.frontline)

b) 3D CAD file (.stp/.fbx/.obj)

Click on the option that best suits your requirements.

Preservation of materials:
The uploading format that ensures the preservation of material colors are .STEP and .fbx files.

Orientation of the model:

To keep the orientation of the model, inside, the CAD file needs to be at a transformation reset (meaning in the CAD software it shouldn't have any rotation values).

Step 4: Continue with the upload process

If you selected the "Optimized" option, the item page and media manager will open, allowing you to select an asset bundle for your Digital Twin.

Once you're ready to proceed, click the "Submit" button to upload your CAD file. After a successful upload, a popup window will confirm that the file has been uploaded successfully.
