3D Model Researcher is the research program for binary files of 3D models. Model Researcher provides the opportunity to output and visualize data, which is read from the file by supplied parameters, and save it in the 3D format Obj. Program can be of great help in search of tables of data of vertices, faces, texture coordinates and their indexes, normal vectors and their indexes in unknown 3D format. The main feature of program is output of arbitrary number of segments for each data unit, which allows searching data files with subsequent visualization.

Opportunities
- Analyze the 3D model files, search of vertices, faces, texture coordinates, normal vectors
- Data output is presented textually
- Data visualization in 3D format
- Visualization of texture coordinates
- Applying textures to the model
- Loading and saving templates with form values
- Conversion "HEX to DEC" /"DEC to HEX" while coping and pasting meanings
- Data export in Obj format

The new version does not support Windows XP. If you need support for this operating system, write to me.

Thanks to herbert3000 for developing the program Model Inspector. The interface was copied from it.

I was going to code something like this but never got around to it.
Thankyou!

Updated the program.
Now the program has all the functions that I planned to add.

So just wondering, is there a basic guide for using this? Do I use it directly on model files?

Yes, such a guide will be published on the program page. The new version of the program will support texture!

Will it support animations in near future.

I already thought about it, it would be great. But with animation, everything is much more complicated: there are already bones, matrices, weights. It's not so easy to add support.

A new version has been released! Added support for textures. The guide will soon be translated into English.

Update
The guide is translated into English!
http://lazov.ru/mr/tutorial.php

What changed?
- Now the program supports Half-Float and Short
- A grid is drawn when UVs is displayed
- In the 3D View tab, added a small button - the function of centering the camera on the model.
- Changing the height and zoom of the camera
- You can change the background color, grid color, polygon color, vertex color. Saving settings.

The new version does not support Windows XP. If you need support for this operating system, write to me.

If you could just add support for half-float and shorts and skip FF bytes in face indices to the previous version that would suffice. :D

AceWell,The type of half-float appeared in new versions of Python, which do not support Windows XP.
What are the FF bytes? I heard about it, but I did not see such models. Can you give an example?

FF bytes are used to indicate a triangle strip reset normally.

there is a sample attached (si00bobj006_01_1.xfbin) to the bottom of this post that has the "FF FF" bytes in the face indices

Thanks guys!
Update the program. In the old version, there was a large memory leak in the text output of the data.
