The download contains ZIP compressed files for all platforms supported by exrTrader. Extract the appropriate ZIP file for your platform.


The exrTrader2017.p file can be copied to any directory where you keep your plugins. We recommend using a manually created plugin directory to separate third party plugins from plugins shipped with LightWave 3D. This will simplify upgrades of LightWave 3D.

Now use the Edit Plug-ins panel (alt-F11) of the Add Plugins menu item to add the plugin file exrTrader2017.p to LightWave 3D.


The MacOS versions of exrTrader are included as a DMG (Disk Image). Double click on the icon to mount the disk image.

You can simply drop the exrTrader2017.plugin icon onto the Install application to install it.

The plugin will either be copied to:

Current User installation option:

~/Library/Application Support/LightWave3D/Plugins

or All Users installation option:

/Library/Application Support/LightWave3D/Plugins

In both cases LightWave 3D 9.6 will automatically pick up the plugins once you launch it.

You are of course free to copy the plugin file to another location and add it manually.
