Hello all,


I'm using V4 and Modo 701 Sp2 on OS X 10.8.4

Installation works fine, just need some minor changes to get it work in ML, thank you for the script  :)


Here're the steps:


( After installation, pls find these 2 files in /Users/[YOURNAME]/Library/Application Support/Luxology/Scripts )


In both "3dc_applink.py" and "3dc_applink_auto.py",  comment out these 3 lines :


# USERNAME = os.environ['USERNAME']
# HOMEPATH = os.environ['HOMEPATH']


Then add these 2 lines right after the above comments:


HOMEPATH = os.environ['HOME']



Now use your editor's find/replace function to replace all "\\" with "/" (without quote)


Also find and remove all "/Documents" (without quote)



File path codes in both files should changed from this:




to this:





Last step, because I'm using V4, I changed all '3D-CoatV3' to '3D-CoatV4' in both files.


If you're using V3, you probably need to skip the last step.



Enjoy! :rofl:

Attached are the edited files for OSX 10.8, only tested with OSX 10.8.4 + 3DC V4 + Modo 701 Sp2.


After installation, pls find these 2 files in your script folder with same names and replace them. 


My procedure of using the AppLink is like this:


1. Make my model in MODO

2. Run 3dc_applink.lxm ( or click on the button/form you've mapped '@3dc_applink.lxm')

3. Choose export type, click Export to 3D-Coat, save the .obj

4. Switch to 3D-Coat, Import dialog appeared, choose import options and click ok.

5. After edit, choose File>Open in original app, choose export options and click ok.

6. Switch to MODO, run 3dc_applink.lxm ( if it's not running )

7. Click Import from 3D-Coat


Pls note that some people skip step 5 and use Export to Modo from file menu without success but in my testes it seems ok to do so.


All credits goes to the original makers of these Applinks, cheers.
