# Difference between revisions of "\$modelname"

The \$modelname QC command must be used. It specifies the path and filename of the compiled model, relative to the `\models` folder of the current VPROJECT folder.

Tip: By convention this should be the same name as the QC file, but it doesn't have to be.

## Example

```\$modelname		"weapons\shell.mdl"
\$cdmaterials		"models\weapons\"
\$body		shell	"shell-ref.smd"
\$sequence	idle	"shell-idle.smd"
```

This model will be created at `<game>\models\weapons\shell.mdl`.
