I'm struggling big time to create a custom traffic sign and then import it into Infraworks. This is my workflow:
I know jump into Infraworks, open the model and select the data sources/ 3D Model. I configure the object and first of all, for some reason I have to scale it up 100 times, otherwise it's tiny (Why!?). Infraworks is set in metric system in meters. I set type to City Furniture and select Interactive Placing, and all I get it's this.
I tried several things like not embedding the materials. I created a brand new sign even using another shape and picture. Same result.
Does anybody come up with this issue? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Another simple option is to copy an existing stock .SFF signage model and modify the imagery on it. We had an awesome intern who wrote an article about how to do this a few years back. His article should still present a valid workflow: https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/infraworks-360-infr
Thanks, let us know how it goes.
Thanks for your reply Matt. I have seen that great video and I actually followed his workflow step by step. The only difference I notice is that his images were created in photoshop while mine were downloaded from the Internet. I don't know if that is the issue but I do hope is not as I don't have the time to mack around photoshop to create my own images.
I have a feeling that the issue may be with the units. Since you're having to scale up the FBX by 100, that may be throwing off the material planar mapping.
What happens if you scale the sign in AutoCAD before exporting it to FBX?
