19 comments by Varsity on Jun 24th, 2011

The Blender SMD Tools enable Blender 2.58+ to import from and export to the Source engine. Unlike most other exporters, they are built with usability in mind at all times.

  • One-click export
  • Supports all types of SMD
  • Supports DMX import
  • Supports most Blender features
  • Export multiple objects to one SMD
  • Compile a QC automatically
  • Import a whole QC at once


  1. Get Blender 2.58 or later
  2. Download the SMD Tools from Google Code
  3. In Blender, open ''File > User Preferences'', move to the ''Add-Ons'' tab and click ''Install Add-On'' in the bottom of the window
  4. Check the SMD Tools' box to enable them
  5. Click ''Save as Default'' to enable the tools in all Blend files


  • Use the Import SMD and Export SMD operators to import or export. Search for them from the spacebar menu, go to scene properties, or use the File menu.
  • Group objects to export them to the same SMD.
  • Use the Scene Properties panel for export configuration. SMDs are exported to [output folder]\[subfolder]\[object].smd
  • Use the Armature Properties panel to filter and batch export actions, and to more conveniently manage or create them.

Both of the new panels will start a the very bottom of the list, but can be dragged higher. The animation panel will only appear when an armature with animation data is selected.

hmm.. if this is to be compared to UDK, then you would have to be able to make any kinds of games with the Alien Swarm SDK and not just mods for it.

so is this possible?

No Alien swarm is not the UDK; alien swarm is a game UDK is an SDK much like, hey I don't know, the source SDK.

This game is soo fun. With the console commands i figured out from a steam news update, its even better. L4D-esque horde spawns add a little spice, especially when tweaked a little to specifications. It made soloing Landing bay on easy, well, not so easy :P but i actually made it through one >.^

for a free game, this is one incredibly fun sci-fi creation, building on steam's co-op capabilities, which gives it immersive replay value, making it an awesome return-back platform for general cooperative-skills practice with new gamers and relaxing eye-hand coordination training gamers usually seek. given its free access to the game's sdk, enriches the experience even further, adding various creative production of new game content based on valve's source engine. what would u need more from a top-down…
