 I have followed every step explained here. But whatever i do i cannot export the file as smd but it exports it as dmx instead. Your video has been very useful so far but after working hard on a model all day im stuck at this point. Please help. And thank you for the tutorial.

There is an option to change the export from dmx to smd in the world panel (I think) to the right. If it's not there, check the other panels. I can't remember which one it is off the top of my head. The most recent smd import/export script now defaults to dmx.

+InteractiveBUD Yeah, i figured it out shortly i posted the comment here (i panicked). Thank you for this amazing series of tutorials. I, a 2d artist who has never done 3d work before in my life, created items for DOTA2 in less than a week. If everything goes according to plan, a set named "garments of the wise beast" will soon be in the workshop.

I'm having audio synchronization problems with the video. Good tutorial though, going to have to Blend up a hat of my own.

if you are watching this video to do this when you instal the decoder and gui place them in the common folder because there is no folder with your username any vote this up so people can see

I hope commenting bumps this too the top. You need to know this people!

+Zelephir do you have to open anything in the common folder or literally just put it there?

I am having a problem with SMD Tools. So I got zipped file called Blender_Source_Tools_2.5.3.zip. I tried extract all, extract here, so fourth, and either it gives me an error or it doesn't work when I put in in Blender. I tried using the thing that popped up called: Import-Export: Blender Source Tools or something along that line, and it still didn't work. This is my first time actually attempting at using Blender with a purpose. Please help. I know I am doing something probably everything wrong.

Should I use blender or autodesk maya?

+acidtest36 Maya would be more simple to Export and UV texture but if you are looking ahead to modeling i would really recommend Blender.

Why cant there ever be somthing simple? I mean honestly, i had a great idea for a pistol, and when i tried this out, it was just confusing and i had no idea how to work it. Honestly, how come valve cant create somthing like a model editor that you can add textures and model easily in, and upload it straight to the workshop, why do you need to be so professional?

When I am using Blender, I notice that there are no lines branching from the edges of the cylinder into the middle of the smooth end. For example, at 18:38, you can see all the lines forming triangles on the ends of the cylinder. For me, those are not there. Does anybody know how I can enable this? Thanks.
