I am happy to announce a new, special version of the SpBlender script, Blender 2.6 LDraw Importer Special BMesh Edition. I've taken the V0.7.1 code and changed it to import LDraw models using BMesh, which basically means you can import models use N-gons (up to a 150-gon, the highest I allowed). This is meant to be a research tool, not for general purpose use. Many programs do not support BMesh, and Blender itself supports it as of 2.63+. If you use the script for 3D work, please contine to use the normal release. Again, this is a research tool. I have no plans to make it part of the normal script.
Download Blender 2.6 LDraw Importer Special BMesh Edition from here. I've also upload sample Blender 2.64 BMesh models. And if that isn't enough, here is a large (1080p) clay render of a normal and BMesh LDraw 3001.datSpoiler
Enjoy the research.
EDIT: It seems the [img][/img] tags are broken, so here is the link to the image.
Is there some advantage to supporting N-gons? Is it necessary to import certain models? N-gons are really bad practice in 3D modeling.
