What our Artists are creating

Quotes from voxel artists

VoxEdit has impressed me, since it's the fusion of a modeling editor with an animation system all in the same software.

William Santacruz- Professional Voxel Artist

William Santacruz

VoxEdit is a game changer for voxel artists looking to animate, being the only dedicated voxel editor that features skeletal rigging and timeline animation.

                        The default size is 32x32x32, which translates to 1 meter (3.2 ft) in The Sandbox Universe.

                        32x32x32 is the maximum detail available to make inside a cubic meter. An avatar will be about 2 blocks in height (64 Voxels).

                        VoxEdit comes with a lot of templates to help you get started with your creations, however, please take a look at our technical guidelines to make sure your assets will work in the best way in the Game maker.
