Brush/Mesh/Model editing and conversion tools
Sep 2nd, 2014 at 10:06am
Print Post  
This is a quick list I put together over at UT99.org and I thought it would be useful here.
I still have not reached the end of my list I am sourcing everything from, but I have to visit and inspect each to see what is useful and free.


Many 3D packages have extra import/export plugins so you can often prepare your brush in something useful.
If you have some odd formats or lack of 3D software, then conversion tools can help get your brushes tweaked and imported.

Open Asset Import Library

Quote:
(short name: Assimp) is a portable Open Source library to import various well-known 3D model formats in a uniform manner. The most recent version also knows how to export 3d files and is therefore suitable as a general-purpose 3D model converter.

WinMeshView (based on TetGen)
http://techhouse.brown.edu/~dmorris/projects/winmeshview/
Quote:
winmeshview reads meshes in .ply, .3ds, .face, .obj, and .smesh format, and writes meshes in .smesh, .face/.node, Abaqus .inp, and .obj format. It can also export to a format referred to as ".anode", which is the equivalent of a TetGen node file with only a reference to an element file.

Biturn

Biturn - is converter of 3D files and Bitmaps. It works with most used file formats and also can work with formats from various games ( see table below ).
If you want to extract data from games, try reading my  gamedata document  for a guidelines. If you work with 3dsMax 5 and you don't have support for .ASE file format then download this  ASE import / export plugin  for best data support.
Simon Engledew has recompiled ASE plugin also for 3dsMax 6 and 7
