I greatly appreciate that. However, I just tried it and (shouldn't be
surprised by now) it doesn't work either. Downloaded from the download
link on the Onelab website and installed it, and in the command line I

For a short period, the cursor turns into a crosshairs... but after

any other format that Blender can export - they're .dat, .geo and .pro.
