In this thread I will provide tutorials and help members learn how to rip 3D Models from videogames. There are 2 popular Ripping programs available on the internet for free in in short they both work in similar ways. By no means is this easy to do. Most of the time when you rip a model from a video game you end up with everything on the screen when you hit the printscreen button on your keyboard, once you extract the 3D model from the game you can open the converted file with a 3D Modelling program to delete the items you don't want to get the 3D character you want. First in this I will provide the programs to rip a 3D model with.

3D Ripper DX -
This program works with Direct X 8 and works extremely well with Emulators like Dolphin which is a emulator for Wii and Gamecube games. There are also Emulators for the first XBOX which this program also works with as long as you have Direct X 8 you can use this program it will not work with newer versions of Direct X

3D VIA Printscreen -
This program works the same way as 3D Ripper DX except for that it does'nt matter what version of Direct X you use. I am still learning with this program so I will teach here as I learn myself.

A Video On How To Rip Models -

Now when you get a file from either place, you will need the Crafty Object Viewer. this program will open the *.mdl file that after you extract the files from a folder it will open the MDL file and you can export it as a OBJ file. I have always used Milkshape to open the OBJ file with after I convert it but a lot of the files you will download have a SMD lock which you may need to open the OBJ with 3DS MAX to break up the sections of the model under the Groups tab of either program.

Hello, I'm interested in making my own models for Garrys Mod. Is it possible to do this with what you have showed us here? According to 4 ZimSand141 it seems to be a lot more complicated (or so I understand it). As an example: I want to create a ragdoll of "Illusive Man" from the game Mass Effect 2 (or 3) + I want to face pose him.

If this is the wrong place for these kinds of questions, can anybody please direct me to wherever I can find the correct information? That would be most appreciated.

Man, i can't do this by myself. let's say that my pc is the problem. But all i need is a good ''Antonov 225'' 3d model. I know this website already has one, but that model got polygons on the wings which aren't placed correctly. I would fix it if i could, but there are too many polygons.

Ofcourse i also found the SOLUTIONS! At the beginning in saints row the third, you'll jump out of an ''Antonov 225'' and you will land in steelport

Now my question is:
Can someone please download the game and rip the Antonov 225 with textures and send this to me?!

If so, please answer. Then i will post my email so you can send me

Thanks! biggrin

How is this possible with newer Games. This 3D Ripper Max can only Rip games from DirectX 9 o.o and 3D VIA Printscreen doesnt even exist anymore.
I think I need some help
