    can u make a 3d swords with this?


    Yes, although you will need to create an extra file to tell minecraft where to place the item in the players hand.


    The wiki has documentation and a few examples. http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Models

    this makes ABSOLUTELY no sense and u should make a better step by step tutorial...


    It does make sense, you just don't understand, and this is in turn, is my fault. I am not going to bother making a tutorial for this program, but when I have finished with my current project, I will start work on a much better expansion. For now I recommend following what @dwarfdwarf suggested or use a different program like Opl's model maker or Cubik ( If you have windows. )


    The link to download (for 0.1.3) seems to take me to a dropbox download page. Is that intentional, or did you forget to change dl=0 to dl=1? Also, I might suggest using GitHub releases instead of dropbox, but that's a personal preference. It's a really handy tool, I'm quite glad you made it. :)


    [EDIT] It is a bit difficult to use, it took me a while to figure out how to do something basic, like make a block slightly shorter, and I have have yet to figure out how to make a more complex model, such as the bed you made. The 3D preview doesn't work either. I have to say, it's easier than straight coding in JSON, but much harder than it needs to be. Something as simple as making the tutorials a bit more clear and in depth would help enormously.


    I'm glad you are finding this tool useful, and sorry for the discontinuation, but as I wrote above, I hope to make a much better expansion in the future. Sorry about the difficulty of use, I plan to address this in the follow up program.



    I also apologise for my delayed responses.

    dose this have the dents and stuff that swimmingbird showcased?

    I't works by placing the areas of the block you want to display. If you want an indent, model around that area.
    Cool! I am absolutely confused, though, I don't know what in the world to do. The tutorials aren't really any help.

    At the moment I am really busy with other projects I am working on. In the future though, I will be making a much better version. If you end up not being able to figure it out, try using ops model maker.

    Sorry, but if you wan't to rotate models, you need to use a text editor.
    Here and Here are useful.

    How to use it? Im a noob

    Sorry, I keep forgetting to post the tutorial. It should be up soon.
    Quote from XxDarkMiragexX»

    Don't make this Mac only. With Cubik, I have to pay $12 for it, and the free version as so many restrictions it's ridiculous. This is my only chance to find a good free model maker.

    OPL's model maker is fairly good. The reason why it will be mac only is because java is not very fun to go back to from the new Mac and iOS language. I also don't have any windows or linux machines to test on, so it isn't very stable either.

    This is PAINFULY hard to use.. I switched to OPL'S model creator. and then a new update made that tool stop exporting properly.

    Sorry, I keep forgetting to post the tutorial. It should be up soon.

    Quick question, does anybody know what culling does in the UV editor?

    It makes that face invisible when a block is placed against it. It is only for faces that aren't visible when a block is placed against them.

    I'm trying to create a 8x8x8 present model, but when I load it up ingame and place it down, I can see though the world.

    That is a bug with minecraft. If your model doesn't fill the borders of the hitbox, you need to replace a transparent block like glass, leaves or even flowers.
    Sorry about that, I hope Mojang fix it soon.
    Quote from Jad»
    Please don't discontinue this, it may be worse than Sphax, but at least it is free and mac!

    I'm not going to discontinue this, but I'm going to keep it on an unofficial hold for a fair while longer.
    At the moment I am teaching myself IOS and Mac development. I will "evolve" this into a much better program (A full resource pack editor).
    It will be Mac only, sorry, but that is the main target for this program as Windows users already have Cubik.
    Quote from bananaxplode»
    the models look weird in hand, any way to fix that? :ph34r:

    Not with MC Model Maker, but you can with the text editor. TheMogMiner did a post about it a while back.

    3d preview shows nothing

    I tried getting it to work for a long time before giving up. I'm not going to fix it as with the correct setup, you can use minecraft as a more accurate view.
    I will post a tutorial shortly.

    Awesome! Our resource packs will look amazing when Mojang finish adding feature.

    My textures are 32x32.
    I'm Still not sure what the texture indexs means....


    32x32 textures are not supported currently.
    An index is a number that represents where that texture is on a list.

    I think you have a nice program going on here, but i can't figure out how to make the actual 3d models. I can get the files open and those things, but i have no clue how to do the models.

    Video tutorial would be really helpful ;)

    Thanks.
    A video tutorial should be released soon by Cris_Art_32 or reedmanisback.

    Quote from herobrine2ncik»
    this has nothing to do with the application or program but my mc just doesent do crap with the 3d models on any pack or program in the 3dmodels one some blocks just are giant purpleblack blocks does anyone knows a fix

    Can you send me your resource pack? Also, please contact me at [email protected], since it is unrelated to this thread.

    Hmmm. I will post an update soon.
    Quote from MasterfulGamer»

    Well, yeah you are right, but I do believe Mojang were going to do something about this.

    I haven't heard of a way to fix this, but I hope they do add a way soon.

    Quote from Hori873How can I make it work with 32x32 textures?

    Sadly, you can't. I will add this feature in the final release though.

    I Followed the pop ups,
    But Noting Happend!


    Is your image 16x16 pixels? If not, that is why. Also, make sure that you change to the right index with the selector (The two arrows).
    If you still can't figure it out, I will make a video.

    Whats a Texture Index? Witch one do i chose?

    Choose one that you have not selected before, unless you want to replace one. I will also post a quick update to make it use names, not indexes.

    Oh, sorry for the misunderstanding.
    While you are on the UV Editor, click the half grass - half crafting table icon. Follow the pop ups, and you are done.

    How do i even upload a Block?!

    Press the import button, press "Yes", then find your model file in the chooser. (Must be in JSON Format)

    I'm not sure how the tutorials are coming along...
    Quote from MasterfulGamer»

    Great!

    Could you at least post an update fixing the cullface?

    Is it broken again?
    I thought I fixed it earlier...

    Also, progress on the IOS version is coming along steadily.

    Thank you for making this. It is really cool. I wanted to use Sphax Cubik but it is not mac compatable.

    Thanks, I wouldn't continue development if there was no feedback.
    Quote from MasterfulGamer
    Hey, is everything alright? You haven't posted in awhile.

    Yes, I have started on a full release version, which is playing up tons, and I'm not sure when it will be ready for release.

    Bigger news is that I have started on an IOS Version.

    After a few hours work, I already have what I would have thought to be a few days.



    I may not post back an update for a while, although I will still reply to any comments.

    Can we get a picture by picture and/or video explanation on how to make the models? Your written guide keeps confusing me(too many big words)

    I started on a video yesterday, but I will do a picture by picture tutorial because my filmmaking is not the best.
