MeQanno enables you to construct models (guns, power-ups, monsters, etc.) for Quake on the Mac. It is not strictly a 3d modelling program, rather it allows you to assemble 3d objects (built in other applications) into Quake .mdl files.

It is best used in conjunction with Meshwork, a lightweight (and inexpensive) 3d modelling application by Joe Strout, or with a 3d modelling application that can produce compatible DXF files (Stratavision, Form•z, Hash, etc.)

You will also need a means of accessing the models within Quake's PAK files (pak0.pak and pak1.pak), either Visage by Mark Enlow, or my own DePacker will do the job.
