Missing faces when importing into SketchUp

Monday, April 4th, 2016

When loading a mesh into sketchup, I noticed that sometimes faces would be missing:

cheburashka imported into sketchup with missing faces

two mesh file format IO implementations later, I realized the problem is not the file format but rather that sketch up seems to be ignoring faces (and sometimes edges?) smaller than a certain scale. For example if I scale the model down by 0.1 I see:

smaller cheburashka imported into sketchup with missing more faces

And if I scale the model up, eventually I get all of the faces:

larger cheburashka imported into sketchup with no missing faces

Still not sure how to ensure that all faces get loaded at the correct scale, but at least I know what the problem is now.
