• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Looking for someone to import Blender2FSX

If someone wouldn't mind converting a .blend file into .mdl for me that would be appreciated. I've tried using the blender2fsx tool, but haven't had any success. I just need to import 3 small, simple blender models to .mdl format.

Thanks,
Scott

You should be able to export them as a non-MSFS glTF.

Is this for MSFS? or FSX. Which version of the toolset are you using?

I've been trying to use the Blender2FSX toolset to export to .mdl for use in FSX. I've had no issues with Blender2MSFS for exporting to MSFS.

I once tried recently to export to a non msfs glTF file and Blender crashed. I wasn't worried as I had accidentally select the non MSFS glTF but could have been because I was missing an addon?

What version of the toolset? The toolset you are refering to doesn't work for Blender v2.80 and up. The toolset you are needing is Blender2FSXP3D, which is also available through Resource section here.

EDIT: The location of Blender2FSXP3D is: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/resources/blender2p3d-fsx-toolset.251/

I'm using the 0.98.21 P3D/FSX Toolset and Blender 2.92. The exporter seems to be working, but it will not open with ModelConverterX.

This is the error I'm getting...

An error occured during importing the selected file

Any help is appreciated.

I was able to get the models exported and into FSX by sending the exported file to a better computer for converting, and then back to the old FSX PC.

Thanks everyone for the help.
