Voxel workshop today!

I made a chicken!

Interested in more voxel modeling? There are programs dedicated to voxel modeling that might be worth checking out. These involve downloading and installing new things onto your computer so have a parent help you out!

MagicaVoxel - FREE - This program is open-source (it’s free) but can be challenging to use. Have a parent help you download an install it. https://ephtracy.github.io/index.html?page=mv_main

Qubicle - 20$ - This program costs money but it’s very powerful. I suggest trying out the free programs first. http://www.minddesk.com/index.php

Voxel Builder - FREE - this is what we used in class. It’s very lightweight and simple but is great for learning the basics of voxel modeling: http://voxelbuilder.com/
