Drawing a model on a HUD? (Like a gun, or a playermodel)

Hey guys, I’m trying to make it so I can make a model appear on the top of my screen, but I’m not quite sure how to do this? Like how perp does it when you create a character, or for example, like this hud. I’d assume you can’t do this with any (perfectly conveniently placed) surface.DrawModel :c

And there’s be vgui involved but I’m not sure?


<-- Example.

Hook used: http://maurits.tv/data/garrysmod/wiki/wiki.garrysmod.com/indexd65c.html Example: http://code.google.com/p/tiramisu-rp/source/browse/trunk/tiramisu/gamemode/schemas/global/plugins/hud/cl_healthhud.lua?spec=svn10&r=10

That doesn’t really help much…

You can either use DModelPanel or use a ClientsideModel and draw it in your HUD. I believe you can see how that is done in the source code of DModelPanel.

Well what sort of help do you want? I gave you links to what you could refer to and I don’t see how it isn’t enough? Couldn’t you try something similar to the example in the link?

Actually don’t worry about what I said, go with what Robotboy655 said, DModelPanel was actually what I was looking for when I tried to help you yesterday but couldn’t remember that it was called that so only came across the other.

Okay now that I’ve looked into this more I’m actually interested in it (the function). Look into http://maurits.tv/data/garrysmod/wiki/wiki.garrysmod.com/index0d85.html and also have a look at how the function is coded here https://github.com/garrynewman/garrysmod/blob/master/garrysmod/lua/vgui/dmodelpanel.lua
