What is this for
Blender 3D add-on for easily creating different variations of swords and sword-like objects from a set of library elements and quickly manage their configuration.
This add-on can be useful for artists for creating 3D art and also for game developers.
The add-on works in 3 modes:
1. Random sword
In this mode, you can create a sword with a random configuration and a random set of components. Each press of the button adds a new random sword to the scene.
2. Reconstruct Random
In this mode, you can regenerate an existing sword. All components of the active sword will be replaced with random ones from the set of the library.
In the "manual" mode, you can assemble the sword in the configuration you like by manually selecting the desired sword elements from the library.
Also, you can reconfigure any previously created sword, including made by random modes.
You can add your own elements to the library to expand it or create your own library with various swords elements end configurations.
If you are expanding the library with new elements, be sure to move it to a separate directory, and specify the new path to the library in the add-on properties. Otherwise, you risk losing all the new elements when updating the add-on or the Blender itself!
