TerraExplorer’s mesh layer export tools vastly expand TerraExplorer's compatibility with external viewing and editing applications. The export tool supports export to OGC 3D Tiles (for TerraExplorer for Web and Cesium based clients), I3S/SLPK, 3MX, and 3DML formats, and incorporates clip polygon capabilities so you can extract a specific area of the layer for export. Export is supported for all mesh layers except for imported OGC 3D Tiles (B3DM) and 3DML created from models feature layers.
In addition to the export methods supported from TerraExplorer user interface, additional export options can be performed from the SLMeshConverter command line tool. More about: Importing and exporting using the command line >

TerraExplorer also offers a wide range of options for exporting polygonal areas of a mesh layer, e.g., buildings, to individual OBJ models to enable you to easily extract precisely the areas that you need. A point feature layer is also created in the export process that contains the models’ positioning information. Export is supported for all mesh layers except for imported 3D Tiles and BIM, 3DML created from models feature layers, and 3DML from SGS that do not have edit permission.
The areas for export can be defined in any of the following ways:
- Based on all classification features in all mesh classification layers
- Based on selected classification layer features
- Based on external feature layers
- By drawing a polygon around a single model
