I just installed v16.2 and am trying to export a small area of elevation and imagery to OBJ format but not having any luck. Is it even possible to export terrain to OBJ model format? If not are there other options available for exporting 3D terrain which can be used in modeling and simulation applications?

    Hi Chris,

    Current, the OBJ exporter doesn't support terrain; that's definitely on our list. Our older STL formatter does support it (but not imagery or other geometries), if that's of any use to you. I've added a new ticket (#15893) for adding terrain support to our new exporters, and we'll notify you here in this thread when it's complete. I'm not sure when it will be scheduled. Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best regards,
