I'm a beginner in blender. Trying to texture a 3d furniture model which was downloaded from the manufacturer site. Geometry is made of stretched triangles. This causes problems of stretched texture which is visible on render.

I unwrapped the model with "smart uv project" but the geometry is still stretched Is there any solution to texture it properly or I need to remodel it to make it quads?

What if I need to use dozens of real furniture models like this? Should I model everything from scratch in blender?

some pictures to explain:enter image description hereenter image description here enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Hello :). Triangulated UV map shouldn't be a problem. I'd check the model's normals and double vertices (typical problems on imported geometry). $\endgroup$ Commented May 26, 2020 at 16:54
  • $\begingroup$ Hi, thank you for the reply. Model's normal are ok - all highlighted blue on a face orientation preview. I've also cleared geometry doing: Mesh edit > selecting all> clean up > merge by disatnce which resulted in cleaning over 7k vertices. But there is still problem on my texture $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you ;) I'm not sure if it is ok if I put download link on wetransfer: we.tl/t-JgWgkM54AU $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It looks like a CAD model, and they tend to be messy like this :). $\endgroup$ Commented May 26, 2020 at 17:22

This is caused by N-gons and double vertices.

If you only need simple shading, go Object > Shade flat and disable Autosmooth.

You can also use Mesh > Clean up > Limited dissolve to merge flat faces.
Before any larger changes, the mesh should be properly repaired.
