Qubicle 3.1 out now!

Hey guys, happy belated new year!

I have set up a new version for you which is the first one to support German - and potentially a lot of other languages. If you like to help me translate Qubicle, I have created a GitHub for this matter. There are also rewards! Visit https://github.com/minddesk/QubicleLocalization

Furthermore Qubicle now offers quick help for all actions: just move your mouse over a menu item or button and Qubicle will display help in the status bar at the bottom. Most of the actions are linked to a corresponding detailed help page of the online documentation. Just press F1 and your browser will display the help. On OSX this feature is not available yet because I simply didn't know what key to assign. Is there a standard key for this on OSX? Please enlighten me and I will add it asap.

As always: have fun!

Here's the complete list of changes:

* Qubicle now available in German
* Quick help for all menu entries displayed in status bar
* Online documentation linked for all menu entries with available help (Windows only)
* New Mirror Wall toggle and view properties
* Pop up dialogs can now be closed with ESC
* Duplicate Special now with rotation and scale
* Fixed Voxelizer mesh load bugs (spaces in filenames, Blender)
* Fixed DAE Export bug (added # for data references)
* Replaced all appearances of the word "swatch" with "color"

About This Software

Qubicle is a professional voxel editor optimized for the easy creation of 3D models with a unique, blocky charm. It was used on big hits like Crossy Road and Shooty Skies, and will enable you to quickly design your own 3D models at an affordable price.

Voxels are 3D pixels which allow for a unique aesthetic and workflow:

  • Draw and paint intuitively in three dimensions
  • Build, color and clean meshes in a single step
  • Unleash your imagination in a charming retro style


Qubicle is designed for professionals, with all the tools and options artists expect and need.

  • Feel at home with familiar tools of standard 2D and 3D software
  • Start creating in an hour thanks to an intuitive interface and workflow
  • Create very large models and scenes
  • Edit your models easily in component parts
  • Get efficient mesh optimization perfect for mobile games
  • Edit voxels in 3D or on a 2D canvas
  • Get 21 different tools for drawing, selecting and transforming voxels
  • Use tool-mirroring symmetry
  • Transform and modify selected voxels or whole objects with over 40 different actions
  • Create up to 16 million objects per scene with a maximum size of 1024x512x1024 voxels per object
  • Import and export all supported voxel formats (QB, QEF, QBT, QMO, QBCL, VOX, Minecraft Schematic)
  • Export unoptimized meshes as OBJ, FBX and Collada (Mesh optimization available with Mesh DLC)
  • Export slices as PNG
  • Customize the user interface, including your own hotkeys
  • 3D-print directly at home or upload to i.materialise
  • Upload to Sketchfab to share your models
