The links are dead, and I need this. Can someone temporarily host the files for me if they still have them? Thanks.

=( it`s trial

Rick Nasher(Posted 2013) [#14]
Is this exporter still alive?

John Blackledge(Posted 2013) [#15]
I just relinked:

Rick Nasher(Posted 2013) [#16]
Many thanks John. It looks very promising, much better results than porting to 3DS and then to B3D(no weird artefacts/shades etc).

Now all I need is a key ofcourse cos the trial has expired. Hope the author still gives out keys cos this would really speed up gfx development(buildings). This piece of software deserves a lot more recognition.

Buy ultimate unwrap 3d.Thats a great tool für texturing and converting.
There is a .skp plugin available.And it exports perfect to .b3d.

this would really speed up gfx development(buildings)

I suggest to try 3D World Studio if it is still available. It is really easy to create buildings or furnitures or objects with it.

If you decide to use it, here are some useful tips :
When you open 3DWS, consider that one small square of the grid represents 0.1 Blitz3d unit.
You can increase or decrease the grid size as you want to add more details. (unfortunately the grid squares have a size of 8 instead of 10, this can be confusing...)
Then, when you have finished your model, you export your mesh in.b3d.
Then, when you try to load the .b3d in Blitz3d, use ScaleMesh() or ScaleEntity() to scale the 3DWS mesh at 0.00313 of its 3DWS size, and you will manage to produce and import models with a precise size.

Good luck.

Many thanks for the suggestions guys.
3D World Studio appears not to be available, at least not from the Leadworks site. Did see a demo on CNET with the original pricetag which was quite ^ up there lol.

UUwrap indeed has a plugin, I'll check it out.

Very much a pitty though that Wayne abandoned the project without giving away the key for the SketchUp2B3D Exporter so it is going to the electronic waste fields. Don't people care about their code? Strange..
