Dameria, try putting this folder (unzipped) in your Blender contents folder.

If there's already a folder called bpymodules in you Blender contents folder, put the ColladaImEx folder inside that. If not, create one and put this folder inside it.

Ok, I did it, but the error still persists for me. When I try to click import after I go through the directory to import the .dae file, this is what shows:

So you have the two python files, and a folder called bpymodules with a folder inside it called ColladaImEx with a bunch of other python files and stuff in that?

If you have that, it should work.

Wait a sec, at the bottom of the command prompt in my picture above, does that say on the last line "%1 is not a valid Win32 application."? Because I do not have a 32 bit system, mine is 64 just in case that might be the problem?

I just found something other than Blender that lets me change .dae into .obj, and also lets me do a lot of other stuff to the object like adding vertexes (although I don't know how yet). It is called MeshLab, and I downloaded it here.


It is so much easier to use than Blender, and I don't need a collada plugin =D

Is it possible to add parts to an object? What i mean is, i have imported a model of a person, and it worked fine, but all its parts (ex. wizard.upper body.forearm) are only its pieces of armor. Is there any way i can add parts to the model for its arms and legs so i can move thos separately?

I am pretty sure that you could do that, but you would have to know a lot about 3d editing, and I have no idea about that stuff.

Delpenator 12-20-2009 07:24 PM

Nor do i.

I call upon you super moderator, to enlighten me in the ways of 3D editing. Bestow upon me your powers of superness, and i shall rule my alice world!

And Chris101b thought x2495iiii was wierd.:p

Chris101b, deplementor just threw you under the bus :p lol. I don't think that x2495iiii knows a lot about 3d editing either, but I don't know, he might know how to do it.

I know that's probably true, but this really means a ton to me. If i can't figure that out, i can't even get my WoW world started, which i have completely planned out.:( So can someone please possibly direct me to a site to help me? Also, would meshlab be better than blender in this case?(although blender seems to work fine for me so far)
