I'm trying to find a way to extract the 3d models from xenogears for a project and a bit of research. Has anyone managed to do this yet?  If so what did you use?

I'd look at the Q-Gears project. They had the 3d models rendering in their engine. I don't know about extracting the files but there could be some info in the code.

Thanks for the help, Im not too technical when it comes to 3d software. So far the closest I've got is using unity 3d to view the scenary but not had luck with the 3d character models that it had http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=13887.0

This may help too
https://github.com/Akari1982/x-gears/tree/master/utilites/xeno_field_exporter
I have exporter here and I export some of models with animations. Though animations is hard in xenogears and exporter doesn't support all of them.

Thank you, i will take a look at this repo,

Am I right that the program exports them to .mesh files? I've not seen those before, is it possible to convert those to obj, fbx or x3d so I can open them in Blender?

mesh is Ogre3d file format. I converted into it to use in QGears (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPnej8iKMPg).
i think you can find converters from mesh into obj or modify exporter to support your needs.

@Akari taking another stab at q-gears? I see you are back to reversing https://github.com/Akari1982/q-gears_reverse

I didn't stop reversing. It was just a slowdown. But lately I work hard at world map module of FFVII. Half work done.
