I can learn how to use it but when i download it i just get a zip file and i don't know what to do with it?

that is normal you right click the zip (like always with zip or rar files) and you extract it. you should use winrar for the best experience

I found a way to break the application, i tried forming the 3d plain to be from an image i drew up, it was the front view of a hair piece and it freezes and lags the whole application to the point where i cant use it anymore. I found it funny but im also a bit sad i cant use my custom hair piece qwq.

idk if it will load but heres an image of the Hair piece for better look


If theres a possible fix can someone help me?

I made a futuristic vehicle model and saved it.

Now it has been only 12 minutes,and they are not what I saw before...


Why are these parts broken?

If you look at the arrow, you can see a space,but the block is matched above. This is one part,and there is no plane in this model.

The parts in the circle were all matched to the other part, and they are now like this.


The confusing thing is these are one part,and they look two or more.


If you look closely, this is just one part,and it has a big cut in it.

Pls help me do sth with this. I need this for the weekend.

hey guys I have 2 questions 

1- can I export models to a json file for making a 3D texturepack in model bench?

2- is it possible to sunk a single pixel in a single cubic block model? (for example add a 16*16*16 cube and put diamond ore texture on it then sunk the blue pixels a little?)

I apologize for any possible spelling mistakes
