Crashing to Export Meshes from Roblox Studio

Reproduction Steps

  1. Open your Roblox Studio application;
  2. Open an existing place/create a new place using templates;
  3. Import one of your recent meshes to Roblox Studio in a .fbx file, using either “Bulk Import” (located at Asset Manager) or the new feature “Import 3D”;
  4. While being imported, and modified as you enable a few properties to make it better (such as DoubleSided), right-click on the model’s name at the Explorer tab;
  5. Select the option “Export Selection”;
  6. Export the following mesh as a .obj file.

Expected Behavior

I expected that it would export straight away, so I could use it and import it to software that works with 3D modeling.

Actual Behavior

After selecting and pressing to save it as a .obj, it does not export and either appears a warning message that couldn’t manage to do so/simply shows the screen of the Studio in white, meaning that it crashed.

This bug sometimes appears out of the blue when trying to export normal models and/or meshes.


The affected file was removed from the Dev Forum post to the request of the OP!

Thanks for the report!


Hi, I tried to reproduce the issue with a few different meshes and was unsuccessful. Do you have example files that consistently cause the issue?
