I tried recently to export a model from sc2 to blender. When I opened up blender and tried to search it up on the desktop, it never appeared in the blender directory when I try to search them up. I wondered if something has to be done to the files before they can be important to blender or if I might be doing something wrong.
Download and install the folder in the proper map of your blender installation, instuctions should be also at the link above.
Last step from there is: activate the plugin in blender.
Open blender, go to: File --> User preferences --> Addons, search on import/export and locate "import-export: importer and exporter for Blizzard's Starcraft 2 model files (.m3)" and check the box next to it.
I hope this helps for getting you started in the amazing world of modeling :)
I did not install it till now. This is a good start, although I am running into a few issues as it would seem. Just so you know the file I am trying to get loaded into Blender is swarmhost.m3 and I am using Parallels to run all these applications. My Parallels has Widows 10 running on it. When I downloaded the plugin, it did not show up right away in the addons Import>Export section. I had to click install from file and once it was install, there was a yellow alert icon next to it as follows:
Something tells me that this is not supposed to be happening because when I tried to load up the model, it did not show up whatsoever. I checked the scene section as well. No M3 files appeared. What I attempted to do after the part you see in the picture. Was clicking on the following locations as follows:
Then this part. I clicked on Blizzard M3.
Not Test dds though, but Swarmhost M3. I am using Blender 2.78 currently. I really hope that the parallels aren't the cause behind this cause this. I know that these applications don't work on Mac of course. Do you have an idea what might be going wrong here?
I just performed a testrun to import a Swarm Host and it works for me, so the issue must be with the setup.
Seeing from your screenshots I do see some differences. Not sure it that maters much. I'm not really familiar with 'parallels' and I don't know anything with regard to these programs in combi with mac.
From where I stand... you don't seem to be doing anything wrong as far a I can tell.
There is an old Pc I have. Although its old it might be able to get the job done. I'll see if I can get send the file to that computer get all this working that way. Thank you for the help. One last question. Which version of Blender where you using?
