Why can't I import my Blockbench java model?
Wed, 05/06/2020 - 23:21

I export my blockbench model as a java file, but when I import it into MCreator it says:  "Your model name is not a valid Java name. Custom mob models cannot contain whitespace, start with number or contain any non ASCII letters. Model name is not filename, but the name inside the model Java code (model class name)!". 

Help please!

1.open it in Blockbench
2. File>Properties
3. Put the name of your model in first 2 tables than export
4. Import it to MCR
5. Just as note, I think MCR does not import models from Blockbench correctly in some cases as this bug report says: #60020

Remove the comments at the top. Worked in my case - I think it just looks at the first line for some reason.
