Clean Panels V5.0 and Clean Panels Pro released + 30% off


Are you using a lot of add-ons in Blender? Then 'Clean Panels' may help you organize them for a more effective workflow.

We are delighted to share the news that Clean Panels V5.0 is now live, accompanied by the introduction of Clean Panels Pro. Details are outlined below.

What is Clean Panels?

Clean Panels is an addon to help you manage the clutter in your N-Panel by using filters and some other cool tricks (like Focus Panel and dropdowns) to make accessing your favorite addons easier.
N-Panel Filtering: Categories your add-ons in sets and enable/disable their tabs in one click.

Focus Panel: Access tabs using a popup instead of scrolling endlessly. (Check out the product page for more info about how this works.)

What is Clean Panels Pro?

Addressing the need for additional features that didn't seamlessly integrate with Clean Panels, we proudly present Clean Panels Pro. This version accommodates requests that demanded substantial effort, offering a more robust experience.

Currently available Pro features:

Delayed Loading of Addons

Is your Blender slowing down during startup due to numerous add-ons loading large amounts of data and checking for updates online? Bid farewell to the wait. With 'Delayed Loading of Addons,' you can choose which addons to enable on boot and enable others only when you need them with the press of a button. It has become one of my personal favorites!
