NodeIcon SaveGeom

Saves geometry to a file.

SaveGeom supports OBJ and Draco file formats. To save geometry in Alembic file format, use the SaveAlembic node.


By default SaveGeom node does nothing unless you click Compute current frame or Compute frame range button.



Geometry Geometry to be saved


File names

a single or multiple file names to be saved.

Any occurrence of # will be replaced with current frame number during saving.

For example if current frame is 1, “Model###.obj” will be replaced with “Model001.obj”

Save normals

if set, normals will be saved to file

Include transform

if set, written to file vertex positions will include a model transformation

Create Intermediate Directories

if set, nonexistent directories in the file path will be created

Compute current frame

computes the node at current frame and saves result to file

Compute frame range

opens Compute Frame Range dialog


After clicking on Start button the node computation is started. The node is computed in multiple parallel processed. The number of processes is defined by Process count. The frame range is defined by Start frame and End frame parameters.


If you need to compute multiple saving nodes simultaneously use Nodes >> Compute all from main menu.

Draco params


Quantization parameters describes how much details will be preserved during compression. In general, parameters value range is [ -1 - 30 ] if other is not specified.

  • -1 means that attribute will not be saved.

  • 0 means that attribute will not be modified at all.

  • 1 means that any details will not be preserved.

  • 30 means that details will be preserved as much as possible during compression.

Vertex Quant

vertices quantization attribute. Values range is [ 0 - 30 ].

Tex Coord Quant

texture coordinates quantization attribute.

Normal Quant

normals quantization attribute.


compression level. 0 stands for minimal file compression, 10 - for maximum file compression.
