Add-on: Tissue

5

Alessandro Zomparelli's 'Tissue' add-on can generate stunning geometry.

The add-on is composed by different tools for computational design.

  • Tessellate tool allows the user to copy a selected object (Component) on the faces of the active object (Generator), adapting its bounding box to the shape of quad-faces. Once the Tessellate button was pressed, then more options will appear in the Operator parameters. Update allows you to update the active the Tessellated mesh according to Component and Generator changes. You can also change the parameters of tessellation.
  • Colors-Weight Exchanger consists of two tool: Colors from Weight and Weight from Colors that allow the user to convert the active vertex color to vertex group and vice-versa.
  • Dual Mesh modify the selected meshes creating dual meshes. Dual Mesh output is a polygonal mesh derived from the triangular mesh. Quadrangolar meshes are automatically converted to triangular before.

  1. Hello! I love this addon, but my new RTX NVidia does not accept Blender 2.79 and in 2.8 I have troubles to find the location of the addon. I downloaded the right version, installation ok and it does not show up (and I dont know where to search fiurther...). Does 2.8 still not work with (non implemented) addons? Plz help!
