#359 obj exporter makes file too large


when I import an .obj and do nothing with it except rename a few parts, then re-export it, the file becomes much larger than the original .obj.

See this forum conversation at Friendly Skies:
and on page 3 of that conversation:

    Could you attach a file that demonstrates the problem (that is, a small OBJ file that becomes bigger when imported and exported)? Thanks!

    I just tried to attach a file but got an error that said the file must be no larger than 256K and the files that I have are about 4 MB or larger. I'm not sure if I still have the original one that I talked about. I had to delete some files to make room on my hard drive.

    Have you seen this post in the Friendlyskies forum? (I tell how I made the .obj objects, etc.)

    If you can't attach the file here, could you email it to me? I have some ideas for how to produce smaller OBJ files, but I don't know if they would help your particular model, and the forum discussion didn't give enough information for me to tell.
