File format for Blender

Recommended Posts

Hi, i''m not sure if this is the right place for this wuestion, but i''ll ask any way! Does any one know where there might be a fairly detailed document on the blender (the modeling program) file format, so I can load models into my open gl programs. I can''t find anything about it on the web so I came here. Thanks, -J

Try asking on the blender boards, I know some people are writing converters.

The .blend file format (from what I''ve heard) is basically just a dump of all of the data to a file. This would be way more information that you''d need for a single model. You can get an export script to export the file to a mainstream format though. I have one here (it''s a gzipped python script).
