Copy or move the downloaded
Fusee_v0.7.0.exeto a convenient place on your hard drive. This will become the home of your FUSEE installation.
IMPORTANT: On some systems, the executable file is blocked and it may fail to run. Before double-clicking it, unblock the file
Double-click on the executable file. This will extract its contents into a
Fuseefolder below the folder where the executable file is placed.
In the newly extracted
SetupPerUser.batif you want to register the FUSEE installation only for the current user. This is the only option to install FUSEE without Administrator privileges. You can simply double-click on
SetupMachineWide.bat. This will perform the necessary FUSEE registration steps to enable all users on a machine to use the FUSEE installation. You need to start the command with Administrator privileges, otherwise the installation will fail. To start the machine-wide-installation, right-click on
SetupMachineWide.batand select “Start as administrator” from the context-menu.
Enable the FUSEE Export Add-On within Blender
If a Blender installation exists at a typical installation path (e.g. “C:\Program Files\Blender Foundation...“)
one of the
Setup... commands in the previous step already copied the FUSEE Blender Add-on to a directory recognized
by Blender on start up. Still, the Add-on needs to be activated inside Blender:
- Open Blender
- Open the User Preferences window (“File → User Preferences” or
- Open the Add-ons Tab
- Under Supported Level activate Testing (The FUSEE Blender Add-on is still experimental).
- As a result, the Export Add-on should show up as Import-Export: .fus format. If the Add-on does not appear in the list, the Blender Add-on installation part of the setup process failed.
- Activate the Add-on by checking the check-box.
- Save User Settings and close the User Preferences window.
- Blender’s File->Export menu should now contain the FUS (.fus) option capable of writing FUSEE’s .fus file format for 3D Assets.
