I know I can export files as OBJ, however, it only writes out the current layer as an obj file. Is there a way to write out a modeler file such that each layer is written either a) as a separate mesh in the obj file or 2) automatically each layer as a distinct obj file?

It seems this could be rather tedious otherwise.

Thanks,

Chris

Try doing a search on flay.com and see if you can find a plugin that can export multiple layers as an obj file. I tried obj, 3ds and dxf all three export only 1 layer.
Your other options is to merge all the layers into 1 which may defeat what you are trying to do. assuming 1 object per layer, maybe give each object a unique surface name merge all objects into 1 layer export as obj file, do what you need import then select by surface name and cut an paste them back to their own layer.
