Hey guys,

I'm working on a tool to analyze binary files of 3D models. The result can be saved as OBJ file.
Obviously I was inspired by shak-otay's Hex2obj Mesh Extractor :)

I created it primarily for my personal use but it might be interesting for other people too.

Great ! I edited the post so it is an attachment here (since mediafire links tend to go dead after a while).

Just a little update, I added the download link and changelog in my initial post.
Padding offsets are still absent in this version - but this feature is on my TODO list :)

Hi again!
I need your opinion on something.

Recently I kind of recreated a shareware program called HexDataEdit. The latest version of this program was released 10 years ago and the website is long gone. It's a neat tool for analyzing and structuring an unknown binary file. But it's not possible to legally obtain the full version of the program any longer and in my opinion it's missing some important features.

Ok, here's the first version of my recreation:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/h5a5p9cisxpgs6y/BinaryInspector0.5b.zip
I also included an example folder (the .xml is the template file) so you can see how the program works.

Screenshot:

So my question is:
Is there any need for this program AND should I continue adding new features?

At the moment the program exports the segment and type information as XML document.
I'm thinking about switching to JSON in the future.

Plus I also want to add the possibility to use variable names instead of static numbers in the input fields, like this:

Please tell me what you think about it, I'm thankful for every suggestion!

never question the need for something you enjoy working on, people
typically don't know what they want until you give it to them. :D

i would give it a try but it won't launch on XP :(
i have Java 1.8.0_101

Thanks for the reply!
