Start making your own model now.

Techne is a modeler for Minecraft

With Techne, you can avoid having to mess with code and spending hours recompiling and testing your model. It allows you to create models for Minecraft visually.

Need a box? Click the box button and VOILA! Box too big for you? Scale it down using nothing but your mouse. Simple.

Techne is currently available for download, but features are still being added and bugs are being fixed.


You can find more infos, the latest youtube videos and a gallery with awesome models at http://techne.zeux.me/Techne


  • Support for bigger textures
  • Support for child-parts found in 1.9
  • Preview texture mapping
  • Export Texturemap
  • Seeker that allows you to see what part of the texture is mapped to any given cube (and what side)
  • Visual representation of the anchor-point
  • Export to any textbased format with templates
  • History (ctrl+z/ctrl+y) (currently deactivated)
  • Copy and paste
  • Multiselection
  • Turbo Model Thingy support
  • Self-updating
  • Save a model if you want to resume later
  • Autoreloads texture when it gets changed:

Mac/Linux Support?

No, it does not support macs, but techne.zeux.me will and the editor there should be up and running shortly.

The more you cry for it the more it makes me not release it.
However, there will be a release for Linux either way.


You can view a gallery of screenshots at minus.com
Bear in mind that this also shows the history and progress of Techne over the years.


The following prerequisites are required:
  • Windows Installer 3.1
  • Microsoft NET Framework 4 (x86 or x64)

i seem to be having trouble. the current techne doesnt support the current skin setups. so i tried making a model to put into a mod for TF2 mob classes. he looks like buzzsaws and blenders ran him over at the speed of sound.
Dude. i Got a Problem. whenever i Open The Techne.Application and it downloads  i cant install It it says
"Application Validation Did not Succeed. unable to continue" like what the heck was that about -_- pls I need help cause i am working on a Mod.
I want to state that I would of made Mac and Linux version straight after I made the Windows, rather than upload the windows, do bug fixes and then start making a mac version. I'm not moaning, I'm just pointing out what you could of done.
I don't blame him for not doing that, because he would have to learn 3 different languages.

The website and download doesnt work!
Why does my Antivirus think this is malicious and dangerous for my computer? I cant download it, it get to half way and my antivirus just comes in and ends the download but the launcher says its the internet connection but I know its not. 

Also it says that the application cannot be started
Does it require coding? I don't know coding, but i know you spin boxes into shapes ^^
The application won't run. I downloaded it, extracted it from the .zip file and placed it on my desktop. I double click and nothing happens. I figured out how to install it earlier and I already have it installed but it won't open and when it does it immediately says that it is about to crash, and then it stops responding... Please help
Any help?...

If you  are still in the need for help, may I suggest going to the Official Techne website and installing if from there. It works better that way.

Hi quick bit of help is there anyway to move stacked textures so that you can get a better look at them

unable to install or run this application. This application
requires your system to be updated to Microsoft
Common Language Runtime Version 4.0.30319.0

Please contact your system administrator

Is the thin yellow line around the selected body part the hit box?

hmm. . .
1. Try typing ctrl+alt+delete (like you do to login) and then click task manager.
2. Then try launching Techne again and see if it shows up in the task manager.
3. If it does, but then just closes, reinstall Techne. If it doesn't even show up, sorry I can't help you.
It shows but it says[size=12px][color=rgb(37,37,37)]that the application cannot be started[/color][/size]
