Hi, to all the persons reading this. While giants is working on releasing a working one, im putting mine available for all to use

it's on :

To use it, do not forget to save before using the exporter, as blender 2.8 needs a save now before it can calculate the relative path's for
the editor

From the "Blender Exporter Plugin - Feedback" thread on the giants forum it sounds like they won't be updating the plugin any time soon themselves. Would you mind if I use your code as a base for implementing some features (fx. collection instance support) that I myself use a lot in the new blender 2.8, but currently does not play so well with the exporter. I was in the process of updating the 2.79 plugin, but I see no reason to do that if you have already done it :P And the reason I am asking for permission is that I would of course like to share any updates I implement, with the rest of the community.

contact me trough i dont really follow this forum ;) also Jonas, if your updating, be aware that the full exporter is really, really old code, fs11/fs13 age.

Hi everyone,
unfortunately I cannot and provided the plug-in to import / export 3D models in Blender,
I installed the 64-bit version of Blender 2.8. I perform these steps:

install the io_export_i3d plug-in in the path: C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.80\scripts\addons

then: Edit > Preferences > Add-ons > Install add-ons from files

then: select the file and click install, it tells me that the module is installed and Save preferences.

unfortunately when I select: File > Import / export not, showing .i3D files option.

I followed what is written on this page, but the result is always the same ...

Giovanni F. (gioFarmer) 18.10.2019 21:08
I solved the problem... reading the other pages of the forum, unfortunately with the translation I had lost some passages ... Thanks

Got it working. Somehow there was a double entry, of which one was the olad 7.1.x version. Deleted that one re-imported yours. Now working fine for me. Thnx

It's working fine for me so far.

Blender 2.82

After installation I don't see it in Add-ons. How to solve it?

Jorn Hiel (fa285634) 06.04.2020 11:22
by reading and following the instructions on the download page. Not by randomly trying things like the install button. That never workd for any of the plugins from giants

Check out this video link for how to use the new exporter. Watch both tutorials to better understand the exporter.

Also check out the Vertex Design page for help and a link to the latest version of the exporter.

Works with Blender 2.9

When i go onto the link it says "We could not locate the item you are trying to view." How do i fix this?

Jonas A. L. Andersen (StjerneIdioten) 13.07.2021 23:10
From what I can tell they have taken it down and someone else has put up a link at NLD to my exporter.
