How do you import a custom model into TF2?

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

How do i go about importing a model into TF2? I'm using Blender with a .obj file, trying to replace the powerjack. All of the tutorials I've seen are really confusing and have little info.

    theres a couple tutorials on them, but the first you have to do is decompile a model to get the SMD file from a MDL file. U do this using a program called Crowbar. After that you need to download an add-on to blender to allow you to import valve assets. After that, you just do a usual import of the SMD files and ur done.
