ModelPort

I just received an email for a discount for ModelPort. Can anyone confirm that this will presently export to FBX in ArchiCAD 26?

For anyone wondering:

I guess what I really need (and have been) is exporting out FBX for AR apps.  Have you done that successfully? Thanks!

Oh yeah, I know, but was wanting to know if it did it already with ModelPort so there's no need to always open it in 27 preview. Guess it's probably not worth it for only a few months.

I thought ModelPort was just for importing?

It is 'only' good for Import. FBX and SKP, and others. It is doing a very good job in terms of quality and especially the file size of the imported objects. I have been using it for quite some time. 

From their site:

"With ModelPort, you can import, preview, edit, and manage settings for a wide variety of objects such as OBJ, FBX, DAE, Revit, SketchUp, and more.  We invite you to review the features below that have made it the leading Archicad add-on for editing and managing imported models."

The downside is that the add-on is pricy and subscription only.
