     - Make sure you can export the model into Panda 3D.  You do that by engaging the **Chicken Exporter** script from the **Scripts Window**.  When you start Blender, the main screen is split into two windows, a 3D view on top and a panel of buttons below.  You can change the contents of each of these windows by clicking on the little icon to the far left in the windows.  You'll then get a menu of possible window types (see screenshot). Change the lower window into a **Scripts Window** using this menu.  Now in the Scripts Window, select the **Scripts -> Export -> Chicken R56(.egg)...** menu item.  In the 3D Window, select the model (it should be outlined in pink to show that it is selected) and in the Scripts Window, make sure the export file path is your working directory and press the **Export** button (notice that you can toggle the **pview** button in the exporter to get a Panda 3D preview after export has finished - in the preview, press **L** to turn on the preview light).\\     - Make sure you can export the model into Panda 3D.  You do that by engaging the **Chicken Exporter** script from the **Scripts Window**.  When you start Blender, the main screen is split into two windows, a 3D view on top and a panel of buttons below.  You can change the contents of each of these windows by clicking on the little icon to the far left in the windows.  You'll then get a menu of possible window types (see screenshot).
