I just downloaded the latest version of electron. I did some renders that I also did yesterday on the previous Raylectron version With the new version I an getting faceting I have not experienced this before. I have attached a render. Just to reiterate I did not get any noticable faceting when rendering yesterday on a previous version of raylectron.

Like the facets in a cut diamond ( Flat faces ) Please look at the round things they show as facets. I rendered the same model yesterday with a previous Raylectron version and the "facets" did not show.

OK just to make it clear, I understand that facets are controlled in sketchup by altering the amount of line segments the default being 24 but I have not/rarely noticed the segmentation and I do about 50 renders a week.

I have attached two images one of the model, with no faceting and then a render with faceting. Could you please answer my query as the faceting is an issue!

oh, you need to group it first before you export it to Raylectron because Sketchup export the wrong normals for the face!
