I have loaded a 3D model but in the documentation, I only see a manual way to contextualize the 3D model (link an object in the model to an asset). I converted our model to NWD, imported and found the name of the asset appears in cognite.client.data_classes.three_d.ThreeDNode. So I pulled out the API and contextualized the 3D model with python. My question: is an automated method to contextualizing the model not provided? If it is not provided, does anyone care to share how they are contextualizing the model.

Hi @David Motte 

 

Hope you are well and thank you for posting this topic in the Hub, we appreciate it.

Please refer to this documentation https://docs.cognite.com/de/cdf/3d/guides/3dmodels_contextualize

This describes the current contextualization process for CAD models. Let me know if you have any further concerns.

 

Best,

Hi @Udantha Wijeweera 

I saw the link you reference but that seems to be a manual approach to contextualizing a 3D model. I’m looking for something much more automated.

I’m looking at this: https://docs.cognite.com/cdf/integration/guides/contextualization/match_entities. It suggest there is an option to “Match 3D models” but I don’t see that option despite setting the capabilities required listed in the same section.
