Mesh Operations v2.0

Blender is a free and open source 3D computer graphics software. When I realized something was slowing down my workflow, I created the Mesh Operations add-on, which allows you to quickly replace objects.

This is Mesh Operations version 2.0, with many new features.

In the first version of Mesh Operations, an object could only be replaced with a cube or a sphere. However, now in version 2.0, you have a lot more options.

Objects can now be replaced by many other types of objects including grids, icospheres and cones. Another new feature is shortcuts for performing specific operations on a mesh. Now, there are shortcuts for adding and removing a bevel modifier, and for unsubdividing a mesh. If you want to lower the polygon count of your mesh you don’t have to go through edit mode, right-click and press unsubdivide (or go to the modifiers tab and use the decimate modifier). Now, there is one simple button for unsubdividing the mesh. There is also a feature which is a quick shortcut to adding a plane with a particle system. This can be useful if you want to quickly make a plane with a particle emitter to use for simulations or to make use of strand particles for something like a grass field.

This version of the add-on works in Blender versions 2.9 and over.

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.
