I'd like to take an animated 3D graphics object (perhaps created using Animate] and export it to something like sketchfab for VR viewing with Google Cardboard. Sketchfab requires either FBX or BLEND formats. Is there a way to convert a format Mathematica can export into one of those formats?

  • $\begingroup$ If we cross-reference the supported file formats in Mathematica 3D exporting with the one from sketchfab, there should be a satisfactory intersection right? $\endgroup$ – Musang Oct 19 '16 at 13:42
  • $\begingroup$ Sketchfab only takes FBX and BLEND files for animations. I can import static 3D models with no trouble. $\endgroup$ – Matt Oct 20 '16 at 19:17
  • $\begingroup$ Correct, I missed the difference between an animation and a static model. I guess in this case your best bet would be to export a movie from Mathematica, then import it using e. g. Blender and use that to export a .blend / .fbx animation. $\endgroup$ – Musang Oct 21 '16 at 9:58
