Hello,

I joined the forums just to share this bit of code which frustrated me and hopefully help others (and hopefully this wasn't posted somewhere already).

The Problem:
After hitting "Send Mesh" you get "Maya Plugin Error: No object matches name..".

The Reason:
In my case I had legal object names with no "|" but when the error showed it showed as if there are extra "|". The reason is because there are 2 or more objects by the same name and the reason they can have the same name it's because they are in a different hierarchy structure, meaning they are parented or grouped under two different parents/groups (otherwise Maya will automatically rename it).

The Solution:
Edit the file "uvlayout_open.mel" so you added the following code:

Right after line #159, where it says:
Code:
duplicate -rr -rc -n $uvlayout_exported[0] $uvlayout_selected[0];

Add:
Code:
$uvlayout_exported[0] = substituteAllString($uvlayout_exported[0], "|", "_");


AND

Right after line #203, where it says:
Code:
duplicate -rr -rc -n $uvlayout_exported[$i] $object;


Add:
Code:
$uvlayout_exported[$i] = substituteAllString($uvlayout_exported[$i], "|", "_");


I tested it and it's working so if there are unforeseen errors, I apologize.
I hope this helps some. (I am using OLD Maya 2008 -blame my school- but this might be relevant to all other Maya versions).
Happy UVing!

EDIT: For convenience, I added the file. I also added a "check point" whether the objExport plugin is loaded or not (if not it loads it). All additions (total of 3) are noticeable for quick adjustments/changes.

Thanks for sharing your solution! Its been a while since I used Maya, but I have a project coming up that needs it, so will test out your changes then.

Can I say something?

THIS WORKS. YOU'RE AWESOME Very Happy

This has been a pain in the ass for me. Pls include these 2 precious lines of code in the maya plugin itself.
