I’m starting to find I’m using Blender a lot more. Is there a chance .blend files could be supported? Since its an open source file type my assumption is you could potentially support it, but I could be wrong.
We plan to add new formats in future updates.
.blend is on that list We can’t promise anything, but we’ll do our best.
Import and export would be great, having transmutr as link between both would be awesome. I think I would use the skp>blend more then blend>skp. Is that on your list too?
No, we have no plan to make Transmutr for Blender, for now.
Having the ability to read and write blend files would be awesome though! I still haven’t seen a good SketchUp importer for blender. Not that I expect you guys to make one, but its definitely something I would use.
And that said…
I did just come across this: https://github.com/martijnberger/pyslapi/releases
Don’t know how well it works yet, but, worth a try!
Reading *.blend files is on our list!
I know, I’m really looking forward to it!
I think for now exporty from blender to .obj file then use transmutr to convert that .obj to .skp file.
I use Tranmutr to import from Blender pretty frequently, but I’ve had better results with Blender-exported .dae files than the .obj files. It would be nice to be able import the blends directly, but this is a low-priority feature request for me.
