    Project mention: MagicaVoxel – A free voxel art editor and interactive path tracing renderer | | 2023-10-28

    I've never used it, but (from what I've seen) is a great tool for modeling Voxels.

    Shameless plug: The format (and the tool) had been used with great success in Veloren, an Open Source Voxel MMORPG written in rust ( The artist team has made great assets for the game and landscapes for the release parties.

    Your should check out the project, it is really cool.
