Getting Started

Welcome to the hephaestus-engine documentation.

Hephaestus-engine is a custom model creation, animation and interaction library for Minecraft: Java Edition, you can use it in multiple platforms like Spigot, Paper and Minestom

Note that hephaestus-engine is a work in progress, we are looking for contributors.


  • Automatic and extensible resource-pack generation using creative
  • Flexible model animation support, lets you handle how to animate the models: asynchronously in a single thread, asynchronously in multiple threads, etc
  • Blockbench model loading (loads the model itself, its textures and animations)
