This is another "must have" tool for WC3 modding. It allows basic edition and preview of models in WC3. It's a good complement to the MDLVIS model editor. It offers the following features:

War3 Model Editor as the name suggests a Model Viewer and a Model Editor dedicated to Warcraft 3. It supports both loading and saving of *.mdl and *.mdx model formats which are used in Warcraft 3. It also supports *.bmp, *.tga, *.png, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.pcx and *.blp texture formats.

There is a built-in MPQ Browser that allows you to browse any MPQ archive, which also includes Warcraft 3 map files (*.w3m and *w3x). The MPQ Browser has been optimized for speed and is very fast to load and use. The MPQ Browser is customizable so you can add/remove your own icons and filters.

For those who knows C++ I've implemented a DLL-interface for model importing so you can write your own model importer DLL's (for other formats than those I've supplied). Check out the link at the bottom of the page and the docs for more information.

Don't expect this program to be in the same league as 3DStudio or the other leading commercial products. It was created as a simple (and free) alternative!

See the included help-file for more information!

As for the missing d3dx9_35.dll problem you may want to check out this site or this site.
