These are simple Python scripts for Maya and Blender. Free to download from and use for placing objects in your own projects.


From the description on the website:

A very useful but unglamorous tool, a "dropper" is a simple level editor that lets you position objects in 3D space and then writes all the positions/rotations/etc. to an easily parsed text file. Your game can then read this file to put everything in the same place.


This is a Python script that allows you to use Maya as a dropper. It will export any custom attributes that you set, plus you can choose either JSON or XML for the output format.
