Title: .MDL Import to .SMD or .OBJ Export Assistance
Post by: Vagabond on January 22, 2010, 07:30:07 pm
I have been having fun lately with some .MDL files that I have gotten from the Facepunch site, I don't know what to really use to open the .MDL files with and I am trying to export them as a .SMD or .OBJ file so I can work with it in my Pepakura Designer program. Pepakura Designer is a program that allows you to take a 3D file and turn it into a paper creation. I am hoping someone here can either tell me what to do or can help me with the converting because I am going nuts trying to get this to work. I tried using Milkshape3D to import the .MDL but it would'nt work so I am hoping that someone here with more 3D knowledge than me can solve my problem.

http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=45 This may be exactly what you need

http://www.chaosincarnate.net/cannonfodder/mdldecompiler.php I think this MDL decompiler takes a MDL file and breaks it down into SMD files.

You could try quick3d: http://www.quick3d.com/ It's shareware but it might be time-based without limitations.

Thanks sooooo much Raxx looking at the Nem's Tools might just work I hope I still have to install and try it out but if it works you just helped more than you can imagine.
