[Add-on] Plating Generator & Dynamic Jet

Hi there,

I thought I’d do a plug for a couple of add-ons I’ve written on Blender Market (https://blendermarket.com/creators/mark-kingsnorth:slight_smile: )

1. Plating Generator: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/plating-generator-62bad6dc-7b93-48db-8363-0d6b22fbd873


Quickly create unique hull plating patterns using existing mesh topology.

Available here with instructions: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/plating-generator-62bad6dc-7b93-48db-8363-0d6b22fbd873

Features:

  • Quickly generate a plating pattern from a random seed. The pattern is an interlocking effect designed to be more advanced than the standard random face selection in Blender.
  • The pattern can be generated on a whole quad based mesh or on a sub selection of quad faces.
  • Control the amount of grooves cut between the plates.
  • Control the depth of the grooves.
  • Control the thickness of the grooves.
  • Option to split the edges on a smooth mesh to ensure the edges are cleanly defined.
  • Option to completely remove the grooves and leave the plates intact.
  • No hidden geometry created, actions are performed directly on the mesh.
  • Define the number of segments on the sides of the plates and within the grooves.
  • An additional option of selecting the faces for the plates as well as the grooves.
  • Add a bevel to the edges of the plates, and define the number of segments.

2. Dynamic Jet: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/configurable-dynamic-jet



Quickly create a configurable mesh in the form of a fighter jet or starfighter.

Available here with instructions: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/configurable-dynamic-jet

Features:

  • Add the Dynamic Jet mesh from the standard Add menu.
  • A range of configuration options allow you to quickly shape and concentrate on the overall design.
  • Once done, you can then move on to edit the underlying basic mesh as the modifiers are left intact.
  • Base mesh is based on quads which will help it to be quickly extended and used with other operators and addons.
  • The range of configurable options include: optional engines and tail wings, wing span & angle, cockpit size.

If you have a new feature suggestion or feedback on either of the add-ons feel free to contact me through www.markkingsnorth.com or through twitter @markkingsnorth.

IF Dynamic Jet is STILL availible for blender 2.79 I will buy it next week. I cannot use 2.80 because of my graphics card.

I just brought this addon and for the price it does exactly what it said. Since I am an aircraft and spacecraft fanatice ( I was for a short while a Navy Air candidate back in the 80s) the $8 is a more then resonalble price. I just wish it had more features like being able to add more than two tail fins for example

Glad you like it, if you have ideas for new features or still need the 2.79 version let me know via the ‘Contact Creator’ button on my Blender Market page at https://blendermarket.com/creators/mark-kingsnorth

I will. Is blendernation a better place to contact you than here?

I just sent a comment with a list of suggestions to the blendernationi site

I brought the 2.79 version of this plugin. I now have a machine that can run 2.92 where do I get the download code for the 2.8 + version or do I have to buy it again?

Hi Shaba - you should be able to get the update for free by going to the ‘Go To Downloads’ section on your Orders page of Blender Market, and let me know if you have any issues via my Blender Market page at https://blendermarket.com/creators/mark-kingsnorth

Thank you I got it but have just not installed it yet
