|Import OBJ - Export DAE|
From my expanding arsenal of quick and dirty solutions comes another oldie but goodie solution for beginner to intermediate Blender Mesh Artists. I like this one, because it takes about 20 minutes tops start to finish to produce some nice artifacts for your own build or to create gifts for friends.
It is also a great way to share some of your own textured art work, since the layout for the unwrap is easy and stable to apply.

Be sure to download latest JAVA Runtime Engine. Your old one won't work, particularly if you are using Windows 7 or 8.1.
Also Note: I like the ease of (free) Sculpty Paints Lathe use, albeit lathes do exist in Blender. Unless you desire for some reason to use Sculpty Paints for other purposes (not the drawing lathe), I no longer use these resources to create steps, terrain elements or arches. These objects are better made (less steps and better results) in Blender (using Blender modifiers).
