Which Blender 2.8 Exporter are you using? I have tested the Exporter in the link below and it works okay.

I could test exporting your Blender file if you like.

HI David,
would be very nice if you could test it and give me a quick info about what is the problem here

thanks in advance

Hi Philipp
Not sure what the issue is, might have something to do with the materials you are using.
Had your file on one screen and a cube in a separate Blender window. I can export cube in i3d but could not create and export a cube from your file.
Have you tested Blender exporter on a basic cube?

Hi David,
basic cube can be export without an error

There is an update for the i3d exporter as of yesterday.

I will try appending your objects into a new Blender file once I have the new exporter installed..

I was able to export your models after removing and assigning a new material, also turned off Blender physics.

I believe you do NOT need to use Blender's Physics for exporting to GIANT i3d.

The I3D TAB has a Attributes TAB for Rigid Body Collision etc.

The exporter has the capacity to read the Principled BSDF shader, including linked Diffuse ( Color ), Specular, Emissve, and Normal map ( Normal map node ), and alpha.
The normal image has to be linked trough a normal map node, selected tangent, that's going to the Principald

Found another problem yesterday. After exporting the models with textures from blender and importing them in GE they look like metal

couldnt find away to change that

See this link for a guide which works:

Gentlemen, how to fix this error?

What error? If you are referring to the metal finish, then that is just the way the new material system works if you don't change the index of your UV's before exporting. The tutorial which David linked should explain this. I also used this video to understand it back when it was new.
