Installing the Wolvenkit Blender Plugin

Install guide

Step 0: Uninstall the old version

If you never installed a previous version of the plugin, you can go straight to Step 1: Install the plugin

  1. Open the Blender Preferences (Toolbar: Edit -> Preferences) and select the AddOns tab

Complete either of the options below:

Click the Remove button

The build-in Blender way. Should work. If it doesn't check the second option

Delete the files on your disk

Check the plugin's file entry. It will usually be something like this:

%APPDATA%\Blender Foundation\Blender\4.0\scripts\addons\i_scene_cp77_gltf

Navigate there with your Windows Explorer (Hotkey: Windows+R, paste the path above after changing your Blender version), and delete everything โ€” either the entire folder, or all files inside.

Optional: Close and re-open Blender

Step 1: Install the plugin

Download the latest version of the plugin from github:

  1. On the releases page, find the most recent release

  2. Scroll past the change notes to the Assets section

  3. Download the zip file with the plugin:

  1. Start Blender

  2. Open the Blender Preferences (Toolbar: Edit -> Preferences) and select the AddOns tab

  1. Click the "Install" button and select the zip file you downloaded in step 2

Step 2: Enable the plugin

You only need to do this if you never installed the plugin before.

After you have successfully installed the plugin, you can now use the search bar to find it:

Make sure the box is checked and restart Blender.

Troubleshooting

I can't (un)install the plugin!

You can do both by hand. Find your Blender install's plugin folder, the path will look something like this (replace 3.6 with your Blender version):

%APPDATA%\Blender Foundation\Blender\3.6\scripts\addons

Inside the plugins folder, the Wolvenkit Blender IO Suite will be installed to the subfolder i_scene_cp77_gltf.

To uninstall the plugin, delete the entire folder.

To install the plugin, find the folder in your downloaded zip file that contains the file __init__.py, move it here, and rename it.

Now, restart Blender.
