Exporting with layers


#1

Is there a way for exporting a model with the layers intact ? I am going to use the model in Zbrush and texture it there. So far I have been exporting an obj file but it does not save the separate layers or maybe zbrush does not recognize them.


#2

OBJ respects geometry and containers [groups/component_instances], but there is no ‘layer’ coding in an OBJ format file.
You could keep layering in 3d DXF/DWG exports, but is that then going to be acceptable for Zbrush ?

Unfortunately no , the acceptable formats for Zbrush are: Goz , Obj , Ma , Mesh and Meshb. But thanks , at least now I know obj does not record layer data.
