BlockBuilder

BlockBuilder is an open-source Python application to build, edit and visualize user-created sets of blocks (or voxels). The software is lightweight and highly configurable and there is a particular emphasis on robustness and performance. The user interface is built to be modern, minimalist and intuitive.

Installation

To install the latest stable version of BlockBuilder, you can use pip in a terminal:

pip install -U blockbuilder

To create an environment with BlockBuilder installed, you can use conda in a terminal:

conda env create -f environment.yml

This should create a new environment called blockbuilder.

Although both PyQt5 and PySide2 are supported, BlockBuilder does not install Python bindings for Qt by default. At least one of these two packages should be installed but this choice is made by the user. Take a look at the dependencies section to see the tested versions.
