Export 3D Model / 3D Model Format

Recommended Posts

tool for viewing BF models

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1O0SdQE3Jo0HECUZjbLhbdauZhHoLibAU

how to use:

1) Drop models into "BFModels" folder

2) run app

3) open model

4) press "Export to FBX" button

5) check folder with model

+fbx is with animations and with some magic you can use them in Unity

there are alot of bugs and some models will not open

Soon i will share sources for this tool

 

example jugerrnaut model

Sorry for bumping this old thread.

I had some free time again and started again to convert the old models and textures to a modern shading format. I have made this little tool in Substance Designer to convert traditional textures (Diffuse,Normal,Spec) to modern PBR textures (Base Color, Normal , Metallic, Roughness, Ambient Occlusion). It is for sure not the perfect and automated results will not give you the perfect result but I think its less time consuming and less complex than editing every single texture in Photoshop. If you got questions feel free to ask^^

How does it work?

  1. Simply get Substance Player (Free on their website -> https://www.allegorithmic.com/buy/download (You need to create a account))
  2. After installation, open my tool inside of Substance Player.
  3. Drag in the Textures on the "Place Bitmap here"-Area (_col is color, _nor = normal, _par = parameter) + Additionally you can import the .obj by draging it in the lower left area.
  4. Play with the Values untill you're happy.
  5. Press "Export as Bitmap"
  6. Specify Target Folder
  7. Specify Filename (I use this: *ObjectName*_%O)  [%O = the maps will be named properly]
  8. Press Export and you have your PBR Textures

@solcrow 

sick tool you created! I noticed that the FBX export fails when the model has open faces and the mesh is not completely closed. The model displays correctly in the viewer though, maybe the export can be fixed?

An example would be:  gfx\monument\frostland\frostland_monument_previz

So... is there a way anyone knows of I could take these model files and convert them into something I can 3d print?

Also desperate to know this please! Willing to offer like $20 to anyone who can furnish me with the Harvester 3d model for printing :3

@Linny

I have no experience with 3D Print but I can give you the file ready to work on in blender or maya if you like

:ohno:

Again resurrecting the thread: 

Someone mailed me and I got into it again... I used some early stuff already done by others here in the thread and started working on a mass converter to GLTF (universal 3d file format).

Early version up on Github but I'm able to convert the raw geometry to a GLTF:

Oh man, if only i could get my hands on some of the Battleforge models in the STL format...
I could go hogwild with the printer :p

@Fat4life:

There are a dozen converters from .gltf/.glb to .stl^^ Since my script is in like pre-alpha state (should work fine for all meshes geometry but its user unfriendly), I'd suggest checking out solcrows app. It can export .drs (you need to unpack the files ) to .fbx however its one only model at a time. With the generated fbx you can use any fbx to stl converter. But I think he had issues with some models if I recall correctly.

P.S.: I attached the a outcome of my script converted to stl using this converter https://products.aspose.app/3d/conversion/glb-to-stl
