    Hi!

    I'm new to Blender and I am exporting my 3D object as an obj. but when I move it into Buildbox 3 it is nowhere to be seen - completely invisible.

    Even when I look in the 'Mesh Manager' it is not shown. There must be something I am doing wrong in blender?

    The reason why I am doing this is because I have an object which is set to a specific rotation (vertically, as that was how it was originally saved) but when it spawns in I need it to be horizontal. Instead it spawns in vertically and then rotates into a horizontal position - looks very unprofessional. I thought the best way to solve this would be to make it horizontal by default in blender, but as mentioned, I can't even see the .obj when dragged into Buildbox. If anyone knows how to solve this issue inside of Buildbox 3 that would be a great help - but if anyone knows how to correctly export blender files as obj's so they correctly appear in BB3 that would also help a lot!

    Thanks!
    Will

    thre is no reason you could not see the obj in buildbox

    Yepp!

    I'm on mac - but even when I open (using Xcode) the obj I exported using blender, it doesn't show up. I might try uninstalling blender and reinstalling. The fact that I can't see the obj in ANY piece of software makes me think I am exporting it incorrectly.

    I have just installed the 2.8 version and had a go but still no joy - couldn't see the object appear in Buildbox 3 - is there anything specific that I need to select? I attached a screenshot
