Outputting blender to AI

This is a python script that I am using to get scene information from Blender in the Collada format and convert it to .csv so it can be used to train and interact with an AI client.

This Python script is NOT meant to run in Blenders local python environment.

It will check for dependencies, and Python version and convert the file of your choice to .csv .

Since I have to leave blender anyway unless I am working from an Anaconda generated enviornment I prefer to do these things in C#. I included a winForm version as well down below.

# Create a Pandas data frame from the list of coordinates
df = pd.DataFrame(coords, columns=["x", "y", "z"])

# Save the data frame to a CSV file
df.to_csv(output_file, index=False)
