Blender 2.7 MD3 Export Script

I'll look into it, but I'm off to bed now, and have a busy few weeks ahead, don't expect to hear back from me on this before new years.

Did you try the other script a few posts up? The one I worked on already had that stuff coded in, I just added the comment "I think this is all wrong (matrix location)" guess I was right...

the other scripts on your first post sir have all the same codes for tags(EMPTY)..

but in your post Sir, on August 2014 - 10:16 AM, the importer md3(also a exporter) that you gave us sir, it works on tags really fine but it doesn't export animations and mesh well.. just tried on Blender 2.72

and by the way sir, your scripts have error.. i found in elif obj.type == Empty........... "set_frame" it should be "frame_set".
if "set_frame", the tags doesn't export sir

Hold on, I'll find the link.

I couldn't find the link on Duke4 but the thread is here somewhere. I attached the script here in zip format.

Glad it's working well, thanks Mark for putting it here, I meant to but...

The automated triangulate is out because Blender scrapped some key features in 2.8

FYI: if you are using python 3.8, this script will fail since there is no time.clock() function (it was deprecated earlier and completely removed now).
Before to install the script in Blender, please change any reference of time.clock() to time.process_time()

Bye and thanks for the script.

I just checked and my Blender 2.83 is using python 3.7.4 and md3 export seems to be ok. Unfortunately, the exporter seems to become useless with almost every Blender update. ;)

It sure would be great to get md3 import again. Its a pain having to resave a static model to OBJ just to be able to import it to Blender. Then have to save it out as md3 again.

Looks like Mark says this script gets broken on every new version of blender.... I have the latest and I got this error.on Export
Python: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Blender 3.3\3.3\scripts\addons\io_export_md3.py", line 697, in execute
settings = md3Settings(savepath = self.properties.filepath,
AttributeError: 'EXPORT_OT_md3' object has no attribute 'filepath'


Havent found any new plugin that works :( I have tried all the ones out there in the internet....
anybody know how to export animated stuff into MD3? I have seen it in Duke3D HighResolutionPack and dont know how those guys achieved it

That is the problem with using all these old 90's model formats. Finding something other than your game engine that will read or write the format out is going to be more and more of a problem as time and tech moves on. Unfortunately, a lot of source ports have gravitated to IQM as a replacement model format. That is trading an old, unused and unsupported model format for a new unused and unsupported model format. You are getting all the same problems but without the historic support of older software.


Every time the version of the scripting language gets upgraded, it can break old scripts written in that language.

1. Use a portable version of Blender 2.83 that is self-contained and runs from it's own folder and thus isn't installed and won't bugger up your current Blender install. Dump the plugin into that and run that version of Blender whenever you want to export an MD3.

Download the '.zip' version from here: https://download.ble...se/Blender2.83/ and unzip the folder to a location on your hard drive.

2. Use Noesis or Misfit/Maverick 3D to convert the file.

3. Speak very nicely to someone who can upgrade the plugin for the latest version of Blender. Bear in mind that you will be contacting this person regularly as every few years they upgrade the version of Python used in Blender and the script will have to be recompiled regularly.

4. Speak very nicely to one of the coders here to use the assimp plugin to import a modern file format such as FBX, or even the open source glTF file format.

Because I run Win7 I can only go as high as Blender 2.92 and this version of md3 export works for me. No idea if it works in versions 3.0 and up. I zipped it assuming the forum wouldn't accept the .py file as an attachment.

If it works and you built your model in Blender's default scale be sure to set the scale size during export to about 5. Also Blender exports at 90 degrees off. I forget at the moment if you should rotate your model CW or CCW before exporting so it faces forward in eduke.

Nash from GZDoom has one that supposedly works with 3.2. I've not tested it though.

Since the error seems to be a minor one concerning filepath and not some techie mumbo jumbo it might be easier for someone to fix.
