Model Editor Model Editor allows the user to create models, view compiled models and edit the data associated with a model. Model Editor talks to the asset system and knows when files have been updated. Compiling of the model will occur automatically when the session is saved, or when one of the model's dependencies has changed (when a FBX file has been re-exported when the tool is open for example).

In newer Source 2 Source 2 games, Model Editor has been replaced by ModelDoc Editor ModelDoc Editor, but this legacy tool remains available on previous games/tools such as SteamVR Home SteamVR Environments.
