Shape Gen Add-on Update: Presets and UV Mapping [$]


Mark Kingsnorth writes:

Last month I added some new features to the Shape Generator add-on.

1. Presets

You can now add, edit and save lots of preset configurations for different shapes. I have included a small set of example configurations in a separate zip file - see the documentation tab on how to install them.

2. UV Mapping

I've also updated the add-on to do a better job of mapping UVs by default. A UV tile will be mapped to each extruded face. This will help you quickly add textures to objects like this:

My next plans are to upgrade all my add-ons to Blender 2.8.

This and all the add-ons I used to make the title image are available at the Blender Market.

  1. Really enjoy your add-ons. They're fun for exploration of forms. IMO these are some of the most useful add-ons for bringing concept ideas together . . . and they can be used as a fantastic basis with which to construct more detailed forms from if desired. Another great update, Mark!
