What is an MCSG file?

An MCSG file is a 3D model created using MagicaCSG, a free signed distance field editor and path tracing renderer. It is a JSON file that contains plain text information about the shapes that comprise a model. MCSG files can be opened in MagicaCSG or any text editor.

MagicaCSG is an offshoot of MagicaVoxel, a free voxel art editor and interactive path tracing renderer. MagicaCSG allows artists to create, edit, and render 3D images, using signed distance fields and path tracing.

Images created in MagicaCSG are saved as MCSG files. While these files appear as 3D images in MagicaCSG, they are actually plain text files formatted using JSON. The plain text MCSG files contain defines how they appear when loaded in MagicaCSG.

How to open an MCSG file

You can open an MCSG file in MagicaCSG (Windows). To do so, click the Open button that appears in the program's upper right-hand corner, and then navigate to and open your MCSG file.

You can also open an MCSG file in any source code or text editor, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code (cross-platform) or GitHub Atom (cross-platform). This will allow you to view the JSON text your MCSG file contains.
