Exporting Blender models for Godot

Dec 19, 2020 3 min.

This is the workflow that I’m using to export Blender assets to Godot scenes for Dogrun. I’m developing on linux and these are the relevant software that I’m using at time of writing: Blender 2.83.5 (deb) Godot 3.2.3 (flatpak) godot-blender-exporter (commit 3e66e12) Install godot-blender-exporter wget https://github.com/godotengine/godot-blender-exporter/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip mv godot-blender-exporter-master/io_scene_godot/ ~/.config/blender/2.83/scripts/addons/ Then in blender Edit > Preferences > Add-ons and check Import-Export: Godot Engine Exporter.

Future improvements include more obstacles: a seesaw, a fabric tunnel, and maybe a bridge.

It turns out your model looks more like a dog if you use a reference image.

Today marks the beginning of my 4th week of social distancing, so I thought it might be nice to uplift spirits by writing about my aspirations to create a 3d game. Fig 1 I have obtained a copyright release from my employer for this effort based on the following project description: I would like to develop random dog agility courses and then play as the dog running through the course.
