About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    i don't need it.... but i definitely want it!
    this would have made a recent personal project a little bit easier lol

    also, typo in the link.

  2. Is there a list somewhere of Blender object generators? The thought has never crossed my mind that someone would need something like this, but apparently so. It made me wonder what other kinds of generators there may be. Are there furniture generators? Window, door and/or frame generators? Automotive generators? I remember seeing some tree generators, I'm aware of MakeHuman, I also remember one or two cityscape generators. I can't even begin to imagine what other types of generators there may be. I think it would be handy to have a central listing of all known generators, and what versions of Blender they may or may not work with.

    I know this may seem lazy, but sometimes you just need to throw something together quickly and such resources can come in handy.
