Furthermore, you can export the Acute3D model to Google Earth with correct elevation (altitude), you can 3D print the Acute3D model, you can drop Acute3D models to MicroStation PowerDraft elements while preserving the texture maps, and while doing all this you can also control the resolution of the Acute3D models.
