New Add-On: Quickly Deform Objects with Fit Lattice [$]

Fit Lattice lets you quickly add a lattice deformation cage around a mesh or multiple meshes.

In the past when I wanted to quickly change the proportions of an object with a Blender lattice, I have found it time-consuming to create a lattice, define it's size and subdivisions, make it the right size for the mesh (or meshes) I am deforming, and then add one or more Lattice modifiers to the original object(s) and assign the lattice object. This add-on does all this in one click and has the option of presets.

Features:

  • Quick workflow: Select the object(s) you want to deform, and select the 'Fit Lattice' menu option.
  • Configurable: In one operation, also configure the number of subdivisions in the lattice object.
  • Select multiple: One lattice can be applied to many meshes when those meshes are selected.
  • Presets: Choose from a pre-defined list (2x2x2, 3x3x3, 4x4x4...) and/or define your own.
  • Quick deforms: The tool can be used to quickly deform a mesh, for instance, a 'taper' operation.

  1. Dear Mark

    Thanks for this very usefull addon!
    I tried it on window i Had to change proportion, unfortunatly the latttice doesn’t fit exactly to the vertice of my mesh so that you canot snap it with wall vertice for example. Do you have a mean to fix it?

    Anyway many thanks 4 this Addon;)

    • Hi Yann, I cannot check right now but sometimes you’ll need to ‘Apply Object Transform’ to the mesh before you use the addon. Hope this helps but if not contact me via my Blender Market page.
