MESHmachine is a versatile and powerful add-on specifically designed for the popular 3D modeling software, Blender. It offers a comprehensive set of tools and features that greatly enhance the mesh modeling workflow. With MESHmachine, users can effortlessly create smooth transitions, bevels, and insets on their meshes, giving their models a professional and refined appearance. The add-on also provides functionalities for bridge and fill operations, allowing users to easily connect open edges or fill holes in their meshes.
Additionally, MESHmachine includes a surface cleaner tool that assists in fixing problematic geometry by merging vertices and cleaning up unnecessary edges. It also offers a quad remeshing tool for achieving clean and organized quad-based topology, particularly useful for retopology tasks. Furthermore, MESHmachine integrates shrinkwrap and project tools to ensure precise fitting and alignment between different mesh components. Overall, MESHmachine is a valuable asset for Blender users, empowering them to create high-quality 3D models efficiently and effectively.
Features of MESHmachine
- Edge Loop-based Modeling: MESHmachine allows you to create and manipulate edge loops easily. You can add, modify, slide, and remove edge loops with precision.
- Bevels: With MESHmachine, you can create complex bevels on your meshes. It provides advanced bevel functionality with options for controlling segments, profiles, and loop weights.
- Quad Bevels: MESHmachine introduces the concept of Quad Bevels, which allows you to create bevels with only quads, ensuring clean topology.
- Booleans: MESHmachine provides a powerful boolean workflow. You can perform boolean operations like union, difference, and intersection between mesh objects and create complex shapes.
- Fillets and Rounds: MESHmachine allows you to create smooth fillets and rounds on hard edges. You can adjust the fillet radius and control the number of subdivisions.
- Transition Surfaces: With MESHmachine, you can create smooth transitions between different surface types. It provides tools to create and manipulate transition surfaces accurately.
- Symmetry: MESHmachine offers symmetrical modeling capabilities. You can model one side of an object and automatically generate the symmetrical counterpart.
