Pre-Export Arrangement#

Before the export, do the following:

  • Select Customize -> Units Setup and check that Centimeters are set as System Units.

    For convenience, you can set the grid cell size equal to 1 meter:
    Go to Tools -> Grids and Snaps -> Grid and Snap Settings -> Home Grid.
  • Orient the model towards the negative direction of the Y axis, which is the front direction in Autodesk 3ds Max.
  • Set the actual model size.
  • Reset all transforms (Utilities -> Reset XForm).
  • Check that materials are ready for export.

Export Settings#

As soon as your model is ready for export, click File -> Export. Save as type: Autodesk (*.FBX), click Save.

In FBX Export window, select Geometry and enable Smoothing Groups and Triangulate.

In the Advanced Options, enable Automatic scale factor and select Z-up as the Up Axis.
