3D Studio Max .ply Exporter


Recently I've been doing work with the Mount & Blade Engine and needed a file format which was supported by the tools and which also supported vertex colouring. Unfortunately all the existing PLY exporters for Max were pretty useless so I went ahead and wrote my own.


You can download it here.


Fairly simple to use. Just select the object you want to export and run it. It should support texture coordinates and vertex colors. It isn't extensively tested so if you find any bugs then feel free to drop me an e-mail: contact@theorangeduck.com

One warning I will give is that the PLY format is fairly underspecified, which means chances are this script wont work for many other applications outside the realms of M&B. But if you have any experience with file formats and maxscript at all then it shoudn't be hard to adapt.
