GrowthNodes: Explore organic growth on surfaces

5

growthnodes writes:

Today we finalized the first public release of the GrowthNodes addon for Blender.

GrowthNodes is a Blender plugin for generative content creation and simulation of organic growth processes on polygonal surfaces. It can be utilized for both destructive and non-destructive content generation.

Simulation is stored as a series of shapekeys which allows fine grain control over the baked data and enables easy transferring of blend files from one user to another.

GrowthNodes uses Blender's PyNodes API to facilitate user interaction. Functions and data blocks are represented as self-contained nodes. Such an approach allows for scalable and customized node systems that surpass all static GUI implementations.

Features:

  • Mesh objects
  • Procedural Textures (Blender Internal Textures)
  • Image Textures
  • Vertex Groups
  • Shapekeys
  • Animation
  • Geometry Displacement
  • Geometry Dissolve
  • Geometry Subdivide
  • Slope Detection
  • Crease Detection
  • Integer, Float, and Boolean Operations
