How can I create new meshes?

Hey guys,
first at all, I know this belongs to the answerhub section. But for some strange reason i can’t login there. Theres always the message “An Internal error has occurred and we are sorry for the inconvenience.”

So I hope its ok to ask here:

Iam completely new to UE4, but already have some knowledge with the “Blender” software.

I wanted to know how I can create new objects, like a lamp for example. In the editor itself I can only find basic geometry objects and some meshes from starter content.

I already found a way to export/import objects from Blender. But is there an own mesh editor inside the UE4?

UE4 is not for creating meshes. You need to create those meshes in third party software like Blender, 3d , or Maya. Then import them into UE4. However, you can create static meshes from the basic geometry you found in the editor.

You can create meshes in the UE4 -> they are called BSP, but I would recommend you to always create your meshes in blender or any other 3d program. On the wiki you can find a blender to UE4 tutorial -> there you can see what you have to add (e.g 2nd uv channel, collision,…)

Yea I already used your great tutorial :wink:
Seems really easy importing and creating stuff!
