I have a non-optimised, badly structured but working add-on, based on the API-examples, which "dumps" the geometry of the ArchiCAD scene into ascii-files. I export to the radiance format, but I'm hoping to generalise it to other formats as well...
I don't handle texture mapping (yet?) and also ignore smoothing/normals, so it's in no way a releasable addon.
I've had quite some input from other developers on this forum, so in that spirit I can share what I have.
