Support of 0.x and 1.x.x versions:

As of 3 October 2021 the rebuild versions (1.x) are considered stable, they should always be preferred over older 0.x versions. When updating from a 0.x version on 1.16.x to a 1.x.x version on 1.17, you will first need to load your world in a 1.0.x version on 1.16.5, because only the 1.0.x versions contain the migrations code needed to perform the update of worlds. Besides this, your worlds should continue to be playable across the version boundary.

Status of the 1.x.x. versions:

Although the 1.x.x versions are now considered stable and will be only released and maintained branch from now on out into the future, that does not mean that they are bug free or feature complete, or on parity with older 0.3.x versions. If you are missing a feature on the new 1.x.x version, please open a support ticket, after you have searched the already existing issues. Thanks.

Minecraft mod:

Chisels and Bits is a Minecraft Mod which allows you to cut up the large blocks that make up your world, and place the little cuts back down. In any way you like.

You want smoother stairs? Go for it. You want better looking roofs? Or Pillars? It is all possible now.

You can make entirely new looking and feeling blocks by mixing and matching the bits of different already existing blocks.



By default, all solid, simple, full cube blocks, like logs, planks, ores, storage blocks (diamond, emerald, iron etc) are supported. Additionally, some specific blocks are curated by hand, this is especially done for all glass blocks.


The scan for compatible blocks automatically also detects all mod blocks which are compatible. If a mod maker wants to control the selection procedure for his or her blocks, he can do so, by adding them to either one of two tags:

  • chiselsandbits:chiselable/forced to force the block to be chiselable (handy for glass like blocks)
  • chiselsandbits:chiselable/blocked to prevent a block that is normally chiselable to be chiseled.


Since a short period of time we now also have a patreon, consider dropping us a dollar or so if you enjoy this mod. You can find our patreon here.
