You can use the OpenInventor (Inventor) export here: http://www.janw.gothere.uk.com/exportmesh.html It may require a little bit of tweaking to get it working with 2.23 (won't work with 2.25). If you have any trouble getting it going I think I have a working python script you can use if you need it. ...

You might try asking your question in the Elysiun Python Forums.
http://www.elysiun.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

The blender.org site is geared somewhat more towards developing Blender itself. The Elysiun forums are probably closer to what you're looking for. Good luck!

Re: License & Usage Question

I work as a graphic artist for a small software company. I've been using Bender in some of my production work and have recently created a product logo and icon. Based on this statement in the documentation: The individual license is meant for freelance media professionals or one-man companies. The ...

Re: What about NeverWinter Nights?

Given it's popularity, and how actively it's aimed at new content creation, I suspect that if Blender had the ability to import/export the NWN model format, there'd be a large number of happy modellers. For that matter, why not look at incorporating the formats of a number of the more popular games...

Well it mostly depends on how experienced the crew that is freely developing blender is at 3D programming, I would be willing to bet that talent will be getting jobs at the other sites and blender will continue to be the bottom rung, but I think how it will really help is in free speech, say you ne...

Sorry! But that's what the sponsors get. Luckily only at the front page, and pages that directly link from it. So not while reading the messages here. Hope postNuke allows us to do so... -Ton- Don't apologize! The banner adds aren't evil if they're sponsoring Blender IMO! People should know the nam...

Abi Word looks cool but: 1 - Who has tested it, of us? 2 - Is it a strong and established software we can rely for a medium-long period on? Is it worth learning? If XML is chosen I would use my Xemacs, which kick a*s every other WordPro and be happy, and you can use any XML writing program and be h...

It isn't about the setup, but the comfort of all the people that make me flame here for virtually nothing. It just loses any sense for me that there are still people that don't even try to understand. :( The trick is to know who to ignore and who to pay attention to when they speak up. That and be ...

What I have to say? I was hoping you guys would easily agree. :wink: Oh come now, we have to fight a little! Its the Blender community after all. ;-) I guess there's a difference in requirements for the 'technical docs' and 'end-user docs'. Especially when you want to make a book, or documentation ...

i don't think these docbook freaks realize this but: NO ONE HAS DOCBOOK!!! Not very many people want to download YET ANOTHER app just to view the documentation. Almost anyone can read HTML/XML, so docdookie isn't a very good idea, it would prolly shut people off to blender if they have to try and n...

I believe that all the choices which we're currently considering are all very workable. All of these solutions have been used in the past for creating high quality books so certainly they're all at least workable. As far as using Latex goes... To me it has the same weakness as DocBook does. Its a co...

***FLAME ME*** but I would rather suggest POD (for those who are too young POD is Plain Old Documentation, POD can be converted automatically to HTML, TeX etc. etc. As a second possibility I would sponsor good old LaTeX Stefano This is very interesting.

xml can be read in ie mozilla or netscape.
Docbook validation/editing tools can be easily downloaded just like Moz and NS.
