FBX exporter is broken

Failure occurs on some attempted exports with message “FBX file writing plug-in failed”

  • Fails (but worked previously) in Rhino 7 (7.4.21078.1001, 2021-03-19)
  • Works in Rhino 6 (6.34.21034.7001, 2/3/2021)
  • Fails in Rhino 5 64 bit (5.14.522.8390, 5/22/2017)
    “Error writing file” [file path name].fbx
    “Error saving file” [file path name].fbx
  • Works in Rhino 5 32 bit(5.14.522.8390, 5/22/2017)

I think there was a recent update that mentioned something about the FBX exporter when it installed.

Guess I’ll just try a faith-based-reinstall…

Faith-based reinstall worked!

(1) Used System Settings > Add or remove programs to uninstall Rhino 7
(2) Deleted %APPDATA$\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\7.0
(3) Downloaded & Installed the latest version (7.4.21078.1001, 2021-03-19)
(4) FBX exporting works again!
