What is Duplicating a Model

The term Duplicate is used widely in graphic design. Duplicate means to make a copy of an element inside your canvas or scene. Since we are working in 3D and with voxels, when we say duplicate we are essentially saying that we are making a copy of a voxel model inside of the current scene.

Getting Started

First let’s open up the Mega Voxels Play app. For this example we will use the dog voxel model that you make in the beginners tutorial for Mega Voxels Play. We are using this model for simplicity but feel free to use any model that you would like to make a copy of in your scene.


Great! This is the model that will be used to make a copy. We will now cover how to duplicate the dog model in your scene.

How to Duplicate a Voxel Model

The main way to duplicate, or make a copy of, a model is to use the Duplicate tool located inside the model context menu. To access this context menu, simply tap on the voxel model you would like to duplicate. When you select your model, a context menu will appear directly above it. Tap on the button that says Duplicate.


And that's it! When you tap on the Duplicate button, you will instantly see a copy of the model you had previously selected directly adjacent to it. This model is a complete duplicate, therefore you can edit it just like any other model in your scene.


You can continue to make as many copies as you need. Just select the model and repeat the steps above. Below is an example of making another duplicate in the same scene, so we end up with 3 models.
