What is a BCMDL file?

A BCMDL file is a 3D model used by a Nintendo 3DS video game. It is used to show a character, vehicle, or other object in-game. Each BCMDL file contains a model's wireframe, textures, camera data, and animation data (if the model is animated).

More Information

Nintendo 3DS games use assets saved in a variety of proprietary file formats. The BCMDL format (also known as .BCRES and CGFX) is used to store 3D models of in-game characters, terrain, and items.

Each BCMDL file also contains camera data, which a game uses to show the 3D model correctly from different camera angles. If the model is animated, the BCMDL file will also contain the model's animation data.

You can use several player-created utilities to open BCMDL files and view the 3D models they contain. Some of these utilities include:

  • Switch-Toolbox
