So I'm working on an armours and weapons mod using 3DS Max 2021 and the latest version of NIFSkope but I've run into a problem. I used BAE to extract all the meshes from Skyrim SE into a separate folder where I am trying to make armour fittings. I loaded up malebody_0.nif into NifSkope and followed this tutorial on how to use the mesh to fit the armour around but I use 3DS Max 2021 which doesn't have a NIFTool plugin that I can find. I decided to export the .nif as a .obj in NifSkope and import it into 3DS Max only for it to say that no mesh was detected.


Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what else I can do?

The .obj export in NIfSkope is broken, not reliable.

Most people using 3D Max to work on nif use an older version. So does Blender users.
