    I'm not exactly sure if this is the bug you are talking about, but if you have the "edge from face" option selected in the blender exporter plugin, than it will create duplicates of all nodes and beams in some cases. Try disabling that option, i hope this helps. :D

    Regardless of selected options, it would seem that no matter how simple or complex the object is it tries to generate ~20K lines of Jbeam for it which makes the files really bloated and just generally causes problems. I'm sticking to reshaping the Barstow Jbeam from here on out anyways as this way the strength and rigidity of key nodes is preserved better they work better for deformation. The one Blender plugin-generated JBeam I may keep is for the actual body shell as I'm not sure adapting the Barstow's chassis would work as well in that particular instance as it's an entirely different structure and shape, while most of the other pieces (fenders, subframe, engine) share at least a general similarity in those 2 areas.

    Update!
    Baselined the JBeam and started using the Barstow as a reference. Not sure if it was intentional, but most of the body panels are a near-exact fit with virtually no meddling from me. Hoping to have a stable release out soon, but the doors, T-Tops, and front nose are going to need customized beams to work properly, and there are still some mesh loading issues to sort out. 20180513205640_1.jpg 20180513212442_1.jpg 20180514.png 2018051401.png 2018051402.png

    Oh shit a Fireberd. Following this!

    EDIT: Galaxygamer's post is why I never post on this shithole of a forum nowadays: people like you who "unironically" say stupid things.

    Definitely InfernoChicken, that is the most brilliant vehicle name ever conceived. :)

    If I ever publish this on the repository, InfernoFoul is definitely the rebrand I'm going with. 2nd gen camaro is planned as they share most of the same chassis parts despite somehow using entirely different sheet metal for every body part, but for now the focus is a stable release of just the Firebird. I started this thread because I currently have no intentions to de-brand the car as I feel this devalues the experience somewhat, kind of like SgtFido's Oldsmobile mod.
