Tried to get the converted files in CollectionFS but could not find a way to do it.
'''''12th July
* I got a solution in meteor mailing list, which is about using transformWrite handler and creating a new FS.File object for each OBJ file. I have been able to get transformWrite handler working but facing some problems with creating new FS.File object.
'''''13th July
* Whenever I created new FS.File object, I got this weird error about meteor fibers. So I learnt more about how "non-blocking" code works and what are meteor fibers but still I could not make it work.
* I posted my problem as issue on CollectionFS github. There, I got another logic to work on. Now instead of transform write I was to work on "stored" listener. https://github.com/CollectionFS/Meteor-CollectionFS/issues/362
