I’m trying out the exporter and it works very nice, the geometry and the materials (besides the transparency material issue) export very well, however it seems the exporter is not taking into account the origin you define in blender for the meshes.
Since I like to export things by separate (walls, frames, doors, etc) I usually set the meshes’ origin to 0,0,0, or I do a CTRL+A to apply all transformations and sets the origin of the mesh to 0,0,0 as well. This is a good procedure in case you need to export to collada to import later into sketchup since you insert each of the collada/dae meshes into sketchup with its origin and everything falls into place. However, D5 exporter is resetting this origin to the meshes’ geometry (center) so, for instance, I imported my “walls” collection into D5, and since its origin changed it will now be in a different place in D5 space. Then, the same thing, I tried importing my “doors” collection, and since its origin changed now it won’t show up in place in D5’s scene and I’ll be forced to place it by hand, without any snapping options available.
Same principle works for anything you got modeled specifically for a space, i.e. a kitchen, that you want to simply import and have it show up in the place you set its origin from blender.
Can you guys please check this?
