Export objects (*.myassets)
Objects located in “My Library” can be exported individually or as a selection (multiple selection).
This way you can share your objects with other set.a.light 3D users, for example.
Note: You cannot export objects to use them in other 3D programs. This is a set.a.light 3D internal data format.
This is how it works:
Select the desired object or select multiple objects by holding down the CTRL key. Then click on the export icon on the left.
In the file browser you can enter a name and save it. The file extension is *.myassets.
You can give this file e.g. to other set.a.light 3D owners, so that they can import your objects. This is especially important if you give someone a setup (*.set file) in which you have used your own 3D objects.
Own 3D objects are NOT embedded in a *.set file!
It is also possible to export and save the entire library (See below: Back up My Library).
Import objects (*.myassets)
If you want to import a *.myassets file, click on the white import icon (see above) on the far left in “My Library”. In the now open file browser you can select and confirm the *.myassets file.
Back up My Library
You can also export and backup your entire library. This is useful, for example, if you want to move the installation to a new computer.
Click on “File” -> “Export my library”. All objects will be exported into a *.myassets file.
Note: you can also pass on this entire library.
