MCX MDL to CAD

Hi,

I was trying to extract the geometry of an aircraft (I purchased the FSX AddOn "Discover Arabia"), the SeaRey to be precise. Upon import, MCX gave me the messages:
- ModelConverterX - Error while loading moodeldef.xml file
- CFGReader - Starting reading ......{file path here}\Aircraft.cfg
- CFGReader - Reading models from aircraft.cfg
- MDLReader - The file fcs_da_pasearay.mdl is of a non-supported MDL format
- CFGReader - Reading points from aircraft.cfg
- CFGReader - Read 18 points
- CFGReader - Finished reading aircraft.cfg
Can anyone help me extract the 3D data from this aircraft and convert it to any CAD-compatible format?

Hi,

Which version of MCX are you using?

Since you mention it's a FSX addon the only thing I can think of is that it is a compressed MDL as was sometimes used in older FS version (forgot if it was FS2002 or FS2004).

But since I don't have that addon it is hard to tell you more.
 
Hi Arno,

Im using version 1.4.0.0 ba71ba8f DEV 23.06.2020 - I uploaded the package here (removed)

Hi,

That file is not in the normal MDL format indeed. I think it might have been encrypted or so. Not sure how FS would still read it.

Since this is a payware addon, I would suggest you remove your link from your post. It is not respectful to other developers to post their commercial work in public.
