On November 13 2017 fellow Project Pokémon member @Reisyukaku announced a release of SPICA, a tool they work on together with gdkchan. This specific tool is meant to be a replacement for the well known Ohana, also known as Ohana3DS. Reisyukaku stated that it's better because "the BCH (de)serializer has been completely rewritten, giving maximum flexibility and better BCH support".
This application can import multiple file types such as BCH and SMD and it exports SMD and DAE, among other files. Also it can export texture files, it can batch export files and it can merge files. Besides these features there are new features planned that will get added soon. The current planned ones are GFModel exporting and a fully implemented animation player.
Here's another BCH tool that I helped work on with gdkchan to replace Ohana.
How is this better?:
The BCH (de)serializer has been completely rewritten, giving maximum flexibility and better BCH support.
- Imports BCH, SMD, GFModel formats
- Exports BCH, SMD, DAE formats
- Batch/Single texture export in PNG or GFTexture formats
- Batch model export to SMD or DAE
- Merge multiple models to the scene
- GFModel export
- Fully implemented animation player
