  2. Decide if your model is to be submitted as subdividable or realtime.
  3. Real-world scale in any units.
  4. Model positioned near [0,0,0] and model includes a grouping or hierarchy such that entire model can be moved by selecting one object or helper.
  5. Objects in a named layer.
  6. Texture paths stripped.
  7. All extraneous splines, helpers, hidden objects, etc. removed.
  8. Transforms reset.
  9. Model + textures in a single ZIP file with flat file structure (no subfolders) for each file format offered.
