Hi, the guys at unity3d want blender3d to export FBX Iv had a look into 
it and written a basic mesh exporter.- geometry, materials, textures, 
normals, UV's.

no armatures or animation yet.


Heres a link to the script

Im keeping it 2.43 compatible for now so people can test.

This dosnt solve the problem of writing an importer but Im happy just to 
have an exporter for now.
