Lol nobody use free software for organizing files in Blender comunity. It’s not advertising, we want to see how we have done.

I’m actually using it for testing now. The lack of info about Blender usage in the website is not inviting i must admit.
I’ve been able to “load” a folder containing a blend file, if i drag n drop it works but it does just open the blend like regular drag and dropping, is it possible to import quickly the models or groups which are contained into the blend?

right now the only thing a potential (blender) user could gather, is this;
“fully compatible with 3ds Max 7 and above.”

with only apparently Max support the interest in the Blender world for this program will be marginal to non existent.
there are also some other asset management tools either in production like the tool called Bam! or other solutions available which people tend to use.

here are some questions because the site hasn´t answered these;

is the program “listening” or sending my files to your servers or any servers?

do we have to register just to download it?

what kind of licence is attached to your free software?

does it work with .blend files and what about obj and fbx files?

There is something wrong with the connecter website

I just found about this a few days ago, a video about blender integration popped out on youtube. I had a look at it, it looks super interesting! I think the blender integration is still quite raw, but it’s really promising!

Hey guys,

Plamen from Design Connected here. We had a temporary issue with the account creation - it was resolved yesterday and now you can download Connecter.

If you have any suggestions or issues you can post them here (I will follow the thread) or email us directly.

Hello, is there a Linux version?

Hi Bojan,

For now, Connecter is only developed fro Windows. Supporting other platforms is a plan for the distant future.

Thanks for the info :slight_smile:

Is it possible to “bulk export” assets from a single blend file?

Let’s say for example I have a blend file with 100 shaders inside, can I export all of those as separate entries in the library?

Are you planning more functionalities for the blender exporter, such as custom image previews for example?

And thanks for Connecter, I am enjoying it really a lot!

Hi Bernardo,

Yes, you can export multiple assets from a single file. I turned a huge kitbash into hundreds of separate elements in just a few minutes (OK, half an hour, but my PC sucks).

We have plans for advanced features of the export, but for now we are gathering feedback and based on it, we will decide what to impement first.

Thank you!
