sadly - no ... and even those ldr2obj converters are worthless - it still takes a whole lot of work to clean up the mess they create

Sorry, there are no plans currently to add an export option to obj, fbx, 3ds.

To me this seems like a big missed opportunity for Lego. Imagine all the cool fanfilms that could be made with 3D exported meshes.

It works fine for me. just download ldraw.xml from eurobricks (http://www.eurobricks.com) forum (search for it) and put in the lego dir\ near ldd.exe and you'll be fine.

the only way to get the model inside maya, is convering 3ds and clean and quadrangulate..

Sounds funny, the havok logo appears in the web-site, anyone knows if LDD brings Havok dynamics inside? it would much funny if you can play dynamics with the bricks in addition to buil lego models.

so it's free but we are not allowed to use any images produced by the software commercially. Am I right?

Yeah, explode, hit ot throw them, is this possible?

also, as ftaswin, it is allowed to use any images produced by the software commercially, or in your professional works? this is a point
