How to flip texture in BlockBench
Sat, 11/14/2020 - 09:14 (edited)

Hello,

I was making a model in BlockBench, but when I tested it in game it faces the wrong direction. I've tested flipping the model in BlockBench, but the texture won't flip with the model.

Some help would be appreciated 🙂

Can't I just flip the texture? Because when I flip the model it faces the right direction but the texture don't flip.

When I made my model on blockbench I accidentally made it backward (in game back and front are inverted). On blockbench I tried to flip my model and it works, the model in game is fine but when I do that the textures stay the way they were (they don't flip with the model).

In other words, textures which are supposed to be on the front are on the back because I flipped the model and the textures didn't change

how are you "flipping" the model? are you using blockbench->transform->flip X? if so, don't do that. delete the cubes that are facing backward and recreate them facing the right direction

Wait, why? When I use it it works perfectly for the model, the only problem is the texture not flipping

That flips the texture from right to left, what I wanna do is the same as what "flip in z axis" does for model (invert front and back texture of the cubes)

Because when I flip the model, the textures that were in the back of a cube go to the front of this cube and the textures that were in the front of this cube go to the back of this cube.

Nvm, changing the pivot point of the model and then rotating it 180 degrees solved the problem 🙂
