Exporting Characters to Blender

Step-by-step guide for exporting to Blender for non-mod use (i.e. cosplay, 3d print, etc.)


This guide aims to walk you through finding and exporting a character to blender so that its usable for cosplay or 3d printing or whatever. Guide is using nightly WolvenKit, Cyberpunk add-on for Blender, and Blender 3.6.

This guide uses the following versions:


This guide works just the same for guns — add the .ent to your project, run the script, import, profit. Vehicles are more complex and have their own guide: please see Exporting Vehicles for these.

If you want to add a character's animations, you can check the follow-up guide Exporting Rigs & Anims.

The character's .ent file

Finding the file

Before we can export anything, we need to find the .ent file for the character we want to export. This tutorial will use Jackie, but it works just the same for everyone else.

You can find a list of the entity files for a lot of the main characters over on the Cyberpunk 2077 Modding wiki Here

With our project open in Wolvenkit, we switch to the Asset Browser and search for the right file:


You can refine your search, checking only .ent files, by using the following search query:

jackie > .ent

This will give us plenty of files — we'll sort them by file extension and scroll to the ent section of the list. jackie_welles.ent looks promising, so we'll double-check if it's the right file:

  • Right-click it and select Open without adding to project

  • Use the entity preview tab to confirm that it's him

Now, add the file to your project.

Exporting to Blender

With the .ent file in your project, you can run the script that will handle the actual export, adding all the necessary files to your project and exporting them in a way that Blender can process.

Open the Script Manager, find Export_Ent.wscript and run it.

What does the script do/how to do it by hand? (You don't need to know this)

If you open the Entity file then expand the appearances bit of the entity template, he has 15 appearances which all appear to be defined in jackie_welles.app. For this next step you need to have the Wolvenkit resources plugin installed (View Options > plugins to install). The app should also be in the search results for jackie, simply right click it, then do find used files. Sort by type again and find the cookedapp files. Theres several which cover the different appearances, for each one you want to include in your export do the following:

  • Right click, do Find used files

  • Sort by type, find the mesh files

  • Select all and right click, add selected to project

You may need to go through the app file afterwards to check all the meshes got found, it sometimes seems to miss some.

The mesh files should now be visible in the project explorer, occasionally I find they arent showing up but closing and reopening the project makes them appear.

Open the Export Tool, and verify your meshes are listed. Double click one then the export options opens, and verify WithMaterials as the export type and LOD Filter is on. Set the texture type to png if it is not. Select Apply to all files of the same extension then confirm.

Now select Export All (or Export Selected) on the menu bar and a bunch of glb and json files should be exported. After its done a files have been exported notification should pop up to notify you of the success.

Importing into Blender

Before clicking the import button, please read the next section about Importing a specific appearance.

Point it to the exported .ent.json in your project's files. For Jackie, the relative path is source\raw\base\characters\entities\main_npc\jackie_welles.ent.json.

Importing a specific appearance

Unless you specify otherwise, the default appearance will be chosen. If you want another, open the .ent file in your project and enter the exact appearanceName into the Blender open dialog.

You can find the appearance name in your .ent file inside the appearances list:

Now, click the Import Ent from JSON button and wait while the Blender plugin does its thing.

Blender might need a few minutes to load the materials and bake the shaders. If you aren't getting any errors, just assume that it's still at it.

To double-check, you can select Window -> Toggle System Console to watch Blender work.
