How to change your Email Address

When you click “Save” after changing your Email Address, you will be prompted for an email verification code. If you do not verify the new email or close out of this verification window, your email address will revert to your previous information.
Once the code is entered successfully, the new Email Address will be saved.
How to manage your Email Preferences
You can change your Email Preferences from Account Settings → Profile within the User Details Section. Simply click on the checkboxes next to which emails you would like to receive and click “Save”.
You can customize this to receive only the emails you want. Each of these email types is sent on different cadences and with different types of information.
Here’s what each option is:
Product Update Emails: These emails are sent bi-monthly and include information about features and updates to the Cargo App itself. This includes any new Kits or Assets that have been added to your Cargo account.
KitBash News and Promo Emails: These emails are sent ad hoc when we release new Kits, Products, Challenges, Tutorials, Making of Videos, or anything else that we think you’ll enjoy!
KitBash Weekly Newsletter: These emails are send every week and include a round up of news around KitBash3D and the industry at large. They also include artist spotlights, project breakdowns, and job opportunities.

In the “Change password” window, enter your current password, your new password, and confirm your new password. Then click “Save”.
Remember, your password must include at least 8 characters and includes at least 1 capital letter and 1 number or symbol.
How to change your software settings
You can change your software Settings from Account Page → Profile.
From here you can use the drop-down menus for 3D Software and 3D Software Version to change which software Cargo will import assets to.
These menus will only display 3D Software that has been set up in Cargo using Basic Software Setup or Advanced Software Setup. You can set up a new software by clicking the Add New Software Button in the User Software Settings section.
How to change your default texture size
You can change your default texture size from Account Page → Profile.
From here you can use the drop-down menus for Default texture size to change what resolution and file format will be set when opening an asset in the inspector. You can override this texture setting on a per-asset basis, but this default format will always show up first on an un-downloaded asset.
How to change your downloads folder
In order to use assets from Cargo, you’ll need to download all the 3D files and texture maps to your computer. This can take up quite a bit of space, so we recommend downloading to a drive that has at least 100 GB of free space.
By default, Cargo will download all files to %APPDATA%\kitbash3d. You can change this at anytime by following these steps:
Navigate to your account page (from the left navigation menu)
Under Software Settings, click the entry field labeled “Download Folder Location”
Navigate to the folder you’d like to set as the download folder and click select.
Choose whether you’d like to move all existing files to the new location, or leave them where they are.
If you leave them where they are, you will need to redownload any assets from Cargo before using them.
If you move your files to the new location, you may break texture links for existing projects.
Now you're ready to keep creating! You’ve selected a new download folder and all future downloads and imports from Cargo will be linked to this folder location.
