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.

    So this tutorial was performed in Blender 2.71. 2.75 on both the plank addon used in the article/video and the updated version liked by the blog post there are some problems. Under the modifiers tab the only editable option is bevel.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    • Yup, I have the issue where the modifiers tab is missing things and later on the node editor is also missing the vertex color node

      Michel's comment solved the modifier "issue" for me. My creating an attribute node and using "Col" you'll get the same vertex color effect. Let me know if you have any more problems.

      • Oh yeah thanks, that helped, I thought the name portion in nodes didn't affect the actual node, I'm very new to blender so thank you for helping!

          You're in for a real treat. Message me at my username at gmail if you ever have questions or need pointers. It can be intimidating but it is so worth your while!

  2. The newest versions of the add-on have the options grouped in tab that appears in the tootlbaar section of the 3d-view (if not visible, press CTRL-T) because many users found it confusion having the options in the modifiers (even though the add-on behaves like a modifier).

    Right click the link and click save. It will save a .py file. Go to blender, addons, install from file and select the .py script. You'll need to activate it with the checkbox.

  5. I have got textures of single wood boards, how is it possible to give each board of the generated floor a separate Texture? THX for your help

  6. i cant install the addon, i've downloaded the file, zipped and tried to install from user preferences/addons/install from a file... but nothing happen after that. there's no any addon.. plz help!
