I need a way to export a specific model from my Blender scene (for example a textured table) and import it in an already created scene in Maya.

Example case to be more specific:

I created a classroom in Maya and a bedroom in Blender. I want to export the desk I created in Blender and import it as a desk in Maya. How can that be achieved?

The easiest way would be to select the object (desk) you want to export in Blender and export it as .obj file one of these ways:

  • click File -> Export -> Wavefront (.obj) OR
  • press space and type "export" -> click Export Scene: Export OBJ

Make sure to check Selection Only in the Export OBJ section, otherwise you would export the whole scene.

In Maya simply click

  • File -> Import...

and select the exported file.
