- Improved performance.
- Improved compatibility with XPS/XNALara Mesh Versions.
- Mod Protection. When exporting a Mesh you have the option to protect the mesh (only applies to binary meshes). When you try to import a protected mesh the addon will show a message in the blender console indicating that the mesh is protected. And will not import the model.
- Better Blender internal Materials. Import and you have a model that looks just like in XPS! (well... almost). Don't know how to reproduce the XPS reflections, and the micro bumps masks. If you can enlighten me, please do so.
- Hide Bone Buttons. 3 new buttons: Unused hiddes all the bones witch names start with unused. Vertex Group hiddes bone chais that do not belong a vertex group that influences the mesh. Show All Shows all hidden bones.(hidden bones are just moved to the layer 2 of the armature, so make sure you clean up before exporting)
No more stupid rips needed!! In the previous version you needed to ensure you have 1 uv coordinate per vertex. So you needed to create rips in the models. NOT ANY MORE. The addon manages it for exporting and importing so you don't need to merge doubles either. (The addon considers 2 point with the exact same coordenates and normal as the same vertice)
PS: Forgot to mention this in the previous version too. You can use Quands or Ngons to model and the addon will convert to triangles where necesary.
Look for this, the latest and previous versions of the addon here.

Hi, are you still supporting this? If so I'm trying to import a model into Blender 2.8.2 and I am getting the following error:
struct.error: unpack requires a buffer of 1 bytes
location: <unknown location>:-1
It doesn't happen when I import smaller files. Is there any way to get round this? This is the model I'm trying to import:
Thanks in advance :)

Install Xps addon to blender
First thing we have to do is to installing the addon.
Go to the provided link and download the latest version of the addon. DO NOT UNZIP IT.
Open Blender and go to File > User Preferences
Select the Addons tab and c
Make sure you have the correct version of the addon for the version of blender you are using.
The latest verions are:
Blender 2.79 -> XPSTools 1.8.7
Blender 2.80RC -> XPSTools 1.9.2
Any solution ? None of the option is compaprtible with the actual version of Xnalara/XPS
I use Blender 2.76 (since my computer haven't all the minimum requirement for a later version) and instaled the latest XPS adon fore those versions (1.8.6 from the 2.74-2.79 folder).
If you try to open a model in XPS from:
Modify->Load Generic_item: will open almost any filename supported by XPS (xps.xps, *.mesh, *.ascii, *.obj)
File->Add Model: expects to find a file name xps.xps or generic_item.mesh
