Blender 2.79

Installed the Add on Trainz Exporter and it is on my Blender Window:

I need to Install the TrainzMeshImporter however; to get it to work.

The console will tell you where it goes. I get the message:

Export failed please check CONSOLE Window

I can't find the Console Window no matter what I do.

There is a button in the upper left hand corner that has a Blue Circle I This has a selection Python Console but this is not it.

Any Suggestions?


You are looking for the system console. That's in windows > Toggle system console: enter image description here

Do not click the X on the console window since this will close blender. You can close the console only by clicking the toggle system console button again.

Edit: Here's how to do it on a mac: How to open system console to get output from Blender on Mac OS 10?

Hope this helps :)

  • $\begingroup$ I believe that option is only available via windows OS. As a general rule start blender from a terminal. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Dec 25 '18 at 3:17
