    Saving as .LXO and recreating BOM-structure automatically

    Mika Malo

      Hello All,

       

      This is just to share some information which others might find useful if working with similar process.

       

      I have a workflow where I am exporting SW models to Luxology Modo and it works rather well but it loses BOM-structure (hierarchy).

      Also there are few small things that needs to be fixed in model like converting static-mesh items to ream items etc.

      From modo I again need to export to few different polygon-formats (.obj, .dae, .fbx).

       

      I was looking a way to automate this process as much as possible since I have hundreds of assemblies that I need to convert.

      Luckily I found some help from Luxology forums and especially from a nice dude Keith) who wrote dedicated script to modo to handle everything automatically.

      It allows me to just export hundreds of assemblies in .LXO - format to same directory, run the script and it produces subfolders for each different format containing the fixed models.

      All with a single click.

       

      Check this thread on luxology forums and ask from Keith if you are in a need for similar process:
