Just a quick question:

Is there any way to export models without the Shape Name being added automatically?

I have a python script to batch name and export each file individually based on an object attribute. Because the shape name is added automatically I am needing to go in subsequently and strip the Shape Name off the file to adhere to our naming convention.
