I'm the beginner-est of the beginners when it comes to modding. I've done a few recolors of 2D objects like tiles and paintings, but that's it. I've been looking to find a particular kind of dresser, which I can't find anywhere, and so I figure I should just make it myself.
What I want to do is take a preexisting dresser, and make it so that the drawers are along the short side rather than the long side. I literally have no idea where to begin other than I need to use Blender. Does anyone have advice?
Since drawers don't open and close, you won't have issues with interactions. Just as you suggest, clone a dresser, export ALL the meshes (one at a time works best for me ), edit a mesh in blender, import back into your clone.
