Seems like there actually is interest :) ... let's see if I can dig
it up somewhere on my hard disc... found it, and it's actually 150
lines of code.
* The filename is currently hardcoded (/home/raphael/blender_model.c)
Simply change it to your needs inside the script (or write a
dialog that asks for input - I'm no Python wizard - in fact this
script is the only Python code I've written in my life.
* Scaling and deformations:
These are not handled in the script, you MUST select all objects
of the scene and select
Transform -> Clear/Apply -> Apply Size/Rotation (Ctrl+A)
Transform -> Clear/Apply -> Apply Deformation (Shift+Ctrl+A)
in order to have correct transformations in the exported file.
* ### NAO MODIFIQUE NADA DAKI PRA BAIXO, I don't know what this means
(it's from the original author, I just left it in)
* About 60 to 70 % of the code is from me.
* Tested with Blender 2.32
(I just put these notes into the script as well)
About maintaining it:
I have now uploaded it to ftp://ftp.g-system.at/people/raphael/scripts
I am currently not actively using it but I'm accepting patches that
improves it further and will keep it on this FTP location.
If someone else _wants_ to maintain it, I would be happy as well.
I hope this script is useful to you! Patches welcome of course :)
