1) hex2obj is looked upon to be finished more or less
2) Modelresearcher should do the trick, iirc

3) hex2obj is intended to do a first approach only on a format, i.e. convert one sample to obj
Then you should apply your found parameters to the make_obj project which comes with C-source:
viewtopic.php?f=29&t=15955

(You'll need to do some pattern search for example to find counts and start addresses automatically then.)
Okay, I understand. Thanks anyway, H2O has helped me a lot to understand the structure of my model. :)

p.s.: the fact that you "can" and "have to" learn ANY tool to get what you want is something beyond "usability" terms and doubtlessly but with the approach like this you can also say "draw models yourself".
p.s.: once again: I'm not trying to argue, guys, I'm just saying that ui of h2o could be much more better :]

well done;

Use hex2obj or let it be. :)
From my side the discussion is finished like hex2obj. :roll:

If you know how to code you could use the C source in my Make_obj project as a starting point.
Feel free to introduce all features you're missing in hex2obj. :D

Or you could use ModelResearcher.
