It would still be illegal, because simply ripping the models to begin with would require reverse engineering, which breaks 99 % of games User license agreements. And for these models to be turned into DAE files they must've been reverse engineered first.

What if you own Bioshock? c:
Upon the purchase of a game you do not buy the rights to the content within the game itself, you're simply paying for a license to play the game.
Well, technically, if you own a copy of BioShock, and you download this custom story bundled with a premade tool to automatically rip the models out of there (to transfer to the cs) yourself, then any reverse engineering would have already been done. However, I think "disassemble" is also in the user licence agreement.
It's also worth noting that user licence agreements aren't recognized by most courts, because nobody reads them anyway.
Also, there's like six pages here, about following the law. While I think that you should buy games in order to support developers, fuck the law! The law has never done anything for me.
