Import/Export for Blender?

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 :wink: 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:

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.
