thanks, from the Nasa site I also found the 3D Insight lander but I could not convert it to File X. If any of you succeeded, you could do animations with the lander on the surface. I saw it only in Blender.
it would not be difficult to redesign it in BluffTitler because there are also textures, but it takes some time.

Franco (and others) here a .x conversion i done for your projects. Keep textures near the .x (in the same folder)
With uvmodifier, a good reflectionmap, a bit of specularity model looks realistic with a good quatilty

Great Vincent !!
What program did you manage to create the X file with?

Franco Aversa, 9 months ago


Franco i have exported from Blender to .OBJ (.x, 3ds exports do not work very well with that model) then jiggling with various scripts&converters i obtain DirectX. Blender exportation to .x not very sure. Since a long time i try to understand various 3D format looking in files content and with the help of informations found on internet, i understood some things, but most part stays complex

Wow, that's a super detailed model. Thank you Vincent for converting it!

In this screenshot I have placed it in a BixPack 25 template. Nice!

beautiful, pity that with Blender does not convert all x files well.
I have tried other converters but they do not work.
It would take an Outerspace converter.

Franco, have you ever tried AccuTrans3D? I exported the lander from Blender to an obj-file and imported it as such in AccuTrans3D and exported it as a x-file (ASCII). It worked well and all the textures were perfectly retained. It's really a complex model, BT took some time to open it, but then it displayed it in all ist glory.

BTW, thanks for the NASA 3D model site. I didn't know something like that existed.

Here's the lander with the arm deployed. Bix took him home and now the lander is not amused.

Thor5ten, 9 months ago


Thank you very much Thor5ten,

it's the first program that converts and the file is accepted, thanks.

Thank to all,

I'm a bit megalomaniac so my name is already on Mars....

Franco Aversa, 9 months ago


Nice. Franco, you are not disturbed by the neighbors

vincent, 9 months ago


Indeed, the Martians will probably find the drilling in the ground more disturbing than your egotrip 😁

michiel, 9 months ago


@vincent tried to download the model but the link doesn't work.

Filip, 9 months ago


Filip, try now.

vincent, 9 months ago
