Minecraft is very popular right now, a proof that blocky graphics are coming back. But even if you’re not interested in blocky graphics, learning how to create them can be useful if you want to give 3D modeling a shot. For this, you can use Blockbench, a 3D modeling program specifically designed for creating blocky graphics.
Thanks to its sleek and sophisticated user interface, you won’t have a hard time getting started, even if it’s your first time working with a 3D modeling program. There is also a distinct area for designing and for viewing your creation so you can experiment with different functions and see the results in real-time.
Once you figure out that it’s as simple as placing blocks together to create a larger object, you can more easily explore the tools that Blockbench has to offer.
The combination of features will help transform your block design ideas into reality. You can:
Create, export your blockmodels and optimize entities in one program.
If you want to view your model from a particular perspective, you can do so as well as change rotate the model so you can see it from every angle. You can also zoom in, switch to another view, go to fullscreen mode, and create presets so the object will always be displayed the way you want it.
Monitor your progress by taking a screenshot of the model. You can even put a background to have a sense of what it would look like outside the display area.
Whether you’re a huge Minecraft fan or an aspiring 3D model creator, Blockbench proves itself useful and functional. It allows a wide range of modifications to capture your ideas while maintaining a smooth designing experience.
