Add-on for simple mesh importing via graphical menu.
After a long journey that started of me trying to develop a Blender add-on by myself but eventually finding a couple of developers to contribute, Asset Flinger was made (even though it’s not fully functional for all operating systems yet).
It is now released as free to use for everyone. I hope you like it!
I would love to hear your comments on this!
Original first post from 2013-05-28:
Having a folder full of single mesh objects like nuts, bolts and screws etc. as .blend or .obj files is a good start for an Asset Library.
However, appending objects into a scene starts to get tedious if you need to add them often to your scene - like I do.
So I really would like to have an addon for that.
I made a search for an asset library addon but there seems not to be many.
The best I found was this, but it makes each asset as a separate single addon and eventually menus get cluttered. Also distributing the whole asset library to others is immensely difficult.
I would love to have the Asset Library Addon handle a folder full of .obj files, in this manner:
Or even better would be with thumbnails:
Do any of you think this would be a possible addon to make?
I attached the assets as a .zip file to this post
