I look for a standalone script which can export from a blender file with one single Mesh to an arbitrary 3d format (.dae, .obj, .ply, ...).

The deeper problem is, I have a directory with lots of .blend files and I want a little script which can export automatic them to the 3d files. Otherwise I would have to open each of these files in blender and export manually.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I'm not sure if you'll find a link to ready made script here. Probably try to write your own using the Python API and post issues encountered(if any) here. – George Profenza Oct 14 '12 at 16:24

Its really simple to write blender python scripts:

import bpy

save this script as and run script from commandline

blender -P

thats basically it.

I am on macOS, and I would like to import the bpy library. I'm totally new to python and blender : where should I put the blender lib, and where should I write my code ? – Nicolas Zozol Nov 6 '12 at 16:47
