Mindesk Snapshot is an automatically generated asset that contains all your activities related to a linked CAD model, including:

  • Mindesk Root Actor transformation: position, orientation, and scale
  • Materials Persistent Mapping: materials directly assigned in Unreal to linked CAD objects
  • Material Table Override

Each linked CAD file will generate a corresponding Snapshot. You can check the content of your Snapshot by double-clicking on it in the asset manager root folder:

When you stop working with a given CAD asset in the current Unreal scene, you can delete the Mindesk Snapshot to save disk space. Note: this will permanently delete all information related to that CAD asset.
