Hi, grabacada.
I used this macro (https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/54270) to export from SW 2010 to OBJ. Hope it works with SW 2012.

Good luck

I had lot of problems with this https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/54270 exporter, if you are using bigger and more complex parts it doesn't show mistakes, in Blender or similar software, but opening in Keyshot showed me some geometrical problems. As i have seen from forums the built-in exporter for .obj works only with parts, not with assembly files, but I might be mistaken.

Everyone suggested this one http://www.sycode.com/products/obj_export_sw/ but it's a commercial license so you will have to pay.

This is just one example of problems that I had with first mentioned exporter

@ ..., I have no such options in mine. Does it require any extra add ins?
@ Plamen Cherkezov , I'll try with that and see if its possible?
