    if everything you upload goes above the 50mb free limit then you can just upload the .obj file of the model to sketchfab then manually upload and apply the textures. I've found that only the initial upload has to be within the 50mb limit (unless they've changed things, haven't uploaded anything in a while).

    there are also ways to make the model itself take up less data. if you are using 3d modeling software like blender then there are ways to reduce a .obj file size.
    you don't have to save the reduced file as .STL, i think resaving it as a .obj is ok.

    Hello there!
    Have been a while since I Posted WIP pictures, so here are some of the Protoss carrier I'm going back to...







    Next I will be focusing on its escape pods, I believe there are four in each side, divided in two groups on the front and middle of the hangar section, after that I will do the side armor plates. The organic shapes are giving me some headaches, but it seems doable to me. I believe everything is going according to plan, no big issues so far. It's around 360 m long

    Hello!

    I had very little time to play with starmade these days, but I was able to do some more work on the Protoss Carrier (Classic). Here are some low-res pics directly from my Linux PC...











    Enjoy!
