Easier Mesh Replacement Blender Add-on

By: Ali Soltanian Fard Jahromi

Blender is a free and open-source 3D computer graphics software.  I frequently use this program for 3D and 2D animation.  When I used Blender I realised something that had been slowing down my workflow.  The issue which was slowing down my workflow was the inability to replace meshes.  There was no way to directly replace a mesh.  To replace a mesh I would have had to delete my current mesh and then add a new mesh through a series of menus which was drastically slow.  To solve the issue, I modified Blender’s programming to account for this.  I added a feature that I call, “Mesh Operations” to quickly replace a selected mesh.  The feature automatically deletes the mesh and adds a new mesh in a matter of seconds, completely eliminating the need for you to go through the process.

I have been using this for the past week and it has let me complete my projects faster.  The code I wrote to create this uses the Python programming language.
