I have modeled a lowpoly tree in Lihtwave buy expruding faces on a box and made them pointy by welding the 4 outermost points. When i try to export it to a obj file i get this error: OBJ Export: Operation Failed - code 1 OBJ Export: Line Processing Failure And if i try to export it to a 3ds file i get this message: 3DS Export: Operation Failed - code 1 3DS Export: Polygons with 3 vertices only But if i delete the outermost points on all branches it works perfect! How do i make it work???

DanielH from Allegro.cc?

Anyways, is there an option to "trianglize" it? Use that first. You must have some faces that have 4 or more verts.

It''s called trippling in Lightwave, press Shift + t

If you messed around you''ll have to check for 1-2vert polys which you need to delete too, switch to polygons, press w and make sure they''re all triangles. If not you can select the bad ones in that list and delete them.

Also, you may have 1 point polys in your mesh. It will not export if there is.

BTW, the 3DS plug-in for LW is not all that hot, try the one from D-Storm www.dstorm.co.jp
