This Python script for modo exports the selected layer or layers of geometry to an OBJ file.
I use this to quickly bring out layers as separate OBJ files so I can get them into ZBrush as SubTools. Maybe GoZ will render this script useless for me when GoZ is finally released for the Windows platform – I don’t know, but until then this script is saving me quite some time in my daily work.
For simplicity you can assign the script to a button for easy access to it. Like in the screenshot to the right.
And that’s pretty much it – selected the layer you need to export, click the button and enter a filename for your OBJ export and you’re done.
Hope some of you find this script useful.
