Blendm3, StarCraft 2 models importer


Blendm3 is a Blender plugin to work with StarCraft 2's m3 files being developed by Alexander Stante. While animation and exporting aren't yet supported, they are already in their development goals.

From Stante's comment on Blendm3's asset page:

Animation is currently not supported, but will be the next big goal. In a first step I plan to correctly support the importing of bones. About export, I think it you have to wait till the functionality is implemented. As I said, feedback especially if something does not import correctly, is very welcome.



  1. THe more of these export scripts the better! Well done to all the folks working hard on these scripts, they are a huge help

  2. Nice work!

    I hope you have better luck with this one then the Supreme Commander exporter that someone was working on at some point - I think it died when SC's mod community failed to launch.

  3. A person who does stuff on

    So, I downloaded the importer and it works and everything, but where are the model files themselves located?

  4. @A person:

    In the MPQ archives that came with your copy of Starcraft 2/Warcraft 3/WoW. You'll have to extract them with an MPQ tool.

  5. Haha! yes.
    Pretty difficult to get it working though,(took me at least an hour,tut on the blenderartist link)
    what a fun script though. the modelling, uv unwrapping, normal maps. absolutely amazing.
    and like, thousands of models at you're fingertips.
    just awesome.
