This tutorial shows how to convert Wavefront .obj file and texture maps to .vox format which Avoyd can import. The output of VoxTool isn't directly compatible with Avoyd as of version 0.8.11, but there is a workaround: open and then save the .vox file in MagicaVoxel before importing it into Avoyd.
Step 1 - convert the 3D polygon mesh using VoxTool

In the MeshToVoxel tab, starting from the defaults, set:
If you use the example files from the video to test the voxelizer:
Generate the .vox file.
Step 2 - Use MagicaVoxel to make the vox file compatible with Avoyd
Download and install MagicaVoxel if you don't have it already.
Open the vox file in MagicaVoxel (use the menu, not drag and drop), and save it.

Step 3 - Import in Avoyd
Open Avoyd voxel editor and import the vox file: menu File > Import > MagicaVoxel.
