From Text to 3D: How to Make 3D Models with AI?


In this guide, we've demonstrated how to create 3D models using Meshy - an advanced AI 3D model generator. This innovative tool allows for text to 3D model conversion, making it easy to create 3D assets from simple descriptions.

Step 1: Go to Text to 3D Workspace

To dive into creating your own designs, simply click on the “Text to 3D” tab on the left sidebar. This is where our free 3d modeling tool comes into play, allowing you to bring your ideas to life with ease.


Step 2: Enter Text Prompt

In the prompt box, describe the object you want to generate. Include details about shape, color, size, style, and other attributes. The more specific you are, the better the AI 3D modeling technology can work for you. If you need more inspiration, check out our guide for beginners - 50+ Meshy Keywords to Create Amazing 3D Models.

After typing your prompt, click “Generate”. Your task will appear in the “My Generations” section.

Step 3: Select a Preview Model to Refine

Meshy will return four draft models in a video format. Click “Refine” on any model you like for further refinement. If none of the models are satisfactory, click “Regenerate” to generate a new set.

Step 4: Explore the Refined Model

Click on the refined model to view it in detail in the 3D viewer. Use the preview settings panel on the right to tweak various settings. Switching to PBR shading allows you to adjust HDRI strength and rotation, while texture settings lets you fine-tune the metallic and roughness of the texture.

Please note that adjusting these parameters won't alter the properties of the model and textures themselves. They are solely meant to provide different preview options.

Step 5: Edit Texture and Mesh

AI Texture Editing

If you're on a premium plan, you can utilize our AI texture editing tools to retexture models or remove unwanted elements.

AI texture editing can help you regenerate parts of the texture, while smart healing can assist in removing spots from the texture.
