Hello Jr.
Thank you for your reply. I though i could import it but if there is no, i
should find a way then.

I followed the links you shared and i liked how it went but the thing is what we
doing here is mostly writing the code and receiving the model/image. What i need
is giving the model/image and receiving the code (as far as i understand) to use
in RaySar.
