Short answer: No.

Longer answer: If you created every part of your avatar...shape, skin, eyes, hair, hairbase, tattoos, clothing, shoes, jewelry, all the textures...then yes. You can download them to your PC (in fact, in creating them, they are probably already on your PC). Then upload to Opensim.

You can copy your shape sliders to a piece of paper or to a document on your computer. You can upload full perm textures and copy full perm scripts to your computer. You can not copy meshes to your computer, unless you can find some device that could copy full perm mesh the way a Mesh Generator changes full perm prims or sculps into mesh files.

The default mesh avatars are not full perm. Most mesh found inworld is not full perm. Most skins, hair, clothing, tattoos, etc. are not full perm.  If people could just copy and export everything like that, creators wouldn't be able to make any money.

Can I export my SL avatar to for Opensim? My Avatar is one of the SL New Avatars, can this be exported?

When you purchased you mesh avatar (body and head or combo) you bought the RIGHT to USE it in Second Life and only that right.  I suspect you can export illegally since there was at least one badly imported (no feet or hands so really who cares) version of Lara floating around a couple of years back.  In general (and only in general) if you see something in Opensim that looks as good as Second Life then it is fairly likely it is stolen. The exception would be items made by creators that have shops both in SL and Opensim. There are very few.

PS. There WERE a few Opensim creators that only created for Opensim. Most seem gone now but there items can still be found as free or on Kitely market.

I found this web article helpful: https://www.softwaretestinghelp.com/opensim-tutorial/.

Recently I became aware of the extent of copybot piracy in parts of Open Sim. Unfortunately, I believe that legal protection for 'virtual' products is still pretty weak and there is little recourse for small creators whose products have been pirated. 

I believe Second Life's decision not to allow SL users to easily access Open Sim is a good one for that reason.

It was in part LLs decision to make the code available that made copybotting available. I was here then long ago and to say there was and UPROAR is putting it very mildly.  While Opensim looks a lot like SL it is a different platform and has rules that are different in many cases.  

AND I can access Opensim with a simple click on Firestorm login.  ^^ so it doesn't get much easier than that.

I don't know enough to have an opinion about LL's decision to let their code be freely available; I was thinking more about the fact that we don't have hypergrid portals. I believe there was a short-lived experiment with gates, but I don't think residents ever had the option to walk from one world into another.

LL at one time did have a bridge type setup in testing from SL to opensim @Ardy Lay I believe was part of the testing.

Pretty sure that was the IBM partnership project and yes, it was somewhat more functional than the "teleport" to OSGrid, but I didn't get to participate...  so I don't really know.   I would have to research it but I have found that many of the historical publications are gone or have been modified.

Ah, I thought pom at one point said you were in the project,  it's been my belief all along you had your paws in it,  my fault ardy.

Well, form what I understand, there were two, sort of similar things going on.  IBM was involved with one of them and it was secured, not open.  The other was open, did not involve IBM resources directly, and didn't include any asset transference. But, this was long ago and the published articles about them have been edited, so I don't care anymore.
