Summary0002221: FreeCADGui.export([object], "test.wrl") doesn't export object if it's not selected
DescriptionWhen exporting an object/objects to a VRML file using python; I use this line:

    FreeCADGui.export([object], "test.wrl")

But if objects are not also selected in the GUI, exported file is empty like this;

-- file: test.wrl --
#VRML V2.0 utf8

Group {
    Group {



This happens on latest builds of FreeCAD 0.16 (5351 git). Stable 0.15 version works as expected.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open a new document
2. Switch to "Part" workbench
3. Create a box shape
4. Unselect the box Shape
5. Switch to Python console
6. Run command: Gui.export([App.ActiveDocument.Box], "./test.wrl")
Additional InformationA simple workaround is to select the shape before exporting. I use these lines to export a list of objects:

    for o in exportObjects: FreeCADGui.Selection.addSelection(o)
    FreeCADGui.export(exportObjects, filename)
TagsNo tags attached.
