The material preview mode in Blender runs on Eevee...
I may fully support Eevee in the future but even if I do there is no guarantee that it would work on your computer. It would really depend on your computer specs. Eevee is a young renderer and it has a long road ahead to be optimized.

Does this use the ABS plastic materials at all or is it your own custom material? I always thought they were tied together for some reason...Just wondering if I need the ABS materials anymore (I've always found them quite crashy)

in blender you can import collada files with bpy.ops.wm.collada_import(). How would I go about importing a .zmbx Mecabricks file in blender

You download the free add-on, install it, then use File→Import→Mecabricks

Thank you, I am aware that is how you normally import a file and have that functioning. What I am looking for is a way to import a .zmbx file pythonically in the scripting window in blender.

I just tried importing a model into blender with the blender lite add on for the first time, but the transparent pieces lost their transparency and the printed pieces didn't show their decorations. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Not too sure how much you know about Blender but final materials only appear in viewport render mode, not solid which is the default mode.

Thanks, and you're right that I know nothing about blender, so I apologize in advance if I ask any more dumb questions.

Hi, I purchased advanced add on the shop, and it worked well on my Blender 2.80. but, I have a problem using it on the other version like 2.82!
Is there anything I can do to solve the problem?

I am having the same problem as gman13579 - I have blender 2.82 and installed mecabrick lite, but do not get an option to import anything from mecabrick (also does not come up in the addon screen to even check the box to use it)

Works fine on my end; if it doesn't show up in your add-on list, may I ask you which .zip you tried to install? "Blender Lite.zip" or "mecabricks lite.zip"?

It says Blender Lite.zip
I just went to the shop here and got the free version

***Edit im stupid, I was trying to upload the whole zip file not the zip file in the zip file

Alright, as I thought; you have to unpack "Blender Lite.zip" and use the "mecabricks lite.zip" inside it. Glad you got it to work, have fun rendering!
