    Exporting OBJ files using 3D Builder


    Is there a way to simplify the OBJ export feature in 3D Builder for Windows 10? At present I’m importing GLB repair and export. When exporting as OBJ I have many file save prompts - first OBJ, then MTL, then literally 100s of PNG baked texture files. Is there any way around these 100s of save dialogue boxes please! Here is a video link demonstrating this issue and the many save screens I’m trying to avoid - Click to view on YouTube

  2. 3D Builder Export to obj with colors

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues with Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    The issue could occur if OBJ file is exported correctly or the file is corrupt.



    3D Builder can view, capture, personalize, and print 3D models using 3D Builder. Download many kinds of 3D files and edit them using the 3D modeling space. Take a picture with your webcam and make it 3D. Personalize 3D files by embossing your name, or combine
    models and pieces to make something new.

    To assist you better, please provide the information:

    • Have you created another 3D format files through 3D Builder app and checked in another 3D modelling program?
    • When you say that "but the OBJ generated does not seem to contain texture/color information", by which app or applications have you tried to open the OBJ 3D file?


    I suggest you export the 3D file to another file other than OBJ file. Check if the texture and picture is visible or not.



    Reply to us with the information, so that we can assist you better.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance on Windows related issues and we will be glad to help.

    3D Builder Export to obj with colors

    Thank you for your reply.

    The 3MF file was created with Microsoft 3D Scan. I have tested the 3MF file using Microsoft 3D Builder only, I do not have any other tool that can open 3MF files... Do you know any other tool that can open and export 3MF files?

    I tried opening the exported OBJ file using Autodesk Meshmixer and its colors do not appear.

    I tried all other formats and none work... beginning to think the problem is Microsoft 3D Scan and not 3D Builder.

    Thank you.

    Exporting OBJ files using 3D Builder

    3D Builder Export to obj with colors

    Hello,

    I am new to 3D modeling and I have a model in 3mf format which contains texture/colors... I opened it in 3D Builder and I am trying to export it to OBJ (so I can open it in other 3D Modeling programs), but the OBJ generated does not seem to contain texture/color
    information.

    Any ideas how can I do it?

    Thank you.
