# Advanced Setup ## Build as an Xcode project Before starting with this section ensure you have completed the first three steps from the [Quick Setup](https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Building_Blender/Mac#Quick_Setup) section: installing XCode, installing CMake, and downloading the external libraries. If you like to work with the Xcode IDE and build Blender from within it, you need to generate an Xcode project. ### Generating the Project This assumes that you have added CMake to your path as described in the [Quick Setup](https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Building_Blender/Mac#Quick_Setup). Then execute the following instructions in a terminal: cd ~/blender-git/blender cmake . -B ../build_xcode/ -G "Xcode" This will generate the CMake cache files and an Xcode project file in ~/blender-git/build_xcode.
I don’t see build_xcode directory. Is there something I am missing?
