Has anyone ever exported FreeCAD models in to Unreal Engine?

Have some feature requests, feedback, cool stuff to share, or want to know where FreeCAD is going? This is the place.

Saw this video of how to export a SweetHome3D model in to Unreal Engine. Was wondering if folks have done this with FC ?

Can't answer your question but wish I had time to do it. Thanks for the link, I rarely look at stuff like that. Wow!

I have always wanted to see what could be done with virtual solid CAD; You have tools on a rack and use them to carve-up a block or maybe a fire-hose plastic extruder. You could have chain saws, jack hammers, flamethrowers to make fillets and chamfers, using all of these to work on a block 1mm square. Maybe a virtual milling machine or EDM to prove concept of a Mold and then watch the Mold run.

@yorik have you tried this?
Maybe you could conduct battle-royales in your architectural projects ? :lol:

Could be a great way to create a virtual tour of some architectural design, and anything the customer doesn't like he can blast it with that big gun.
