Export Blender 3D to Google Earth KML
Reported Monday, over at A Life Of Coding, Ynniv released a Python script for Blender 3D that exports your 3D meshes, with diffuse lighting, into Google Earth's KML format. Blender is an open source 3D modeling, rendering, and animation studio that has just celebrated its 10th birthday. This marriage of open source and user created software significantly adds to the body of available tools to create very low cost 3D modeling and visualization.
Check out A Life of Coding for the script and installation insrtuctions. Below is an image of the example KML provided by Ynniv.
