Bézier Mesh Shaper v0.9.0

Hi,
Bézier Mesh Shaper is a new mesh editing tool for Blender 2.79 and 2.80 that saves you time.
I was after something that was quick to use but still gave you plenty of control over your mesh form.

How it works:

  • Select two or more vertices.
  • Activate the tool.
  • Manipulate the 3D curve and it will reshape your mesh.
  • Press Enter to confirm or Esc to cancel.

If you have any questions, let me know.

You can get it on Gumroad or Blender Market:

It looks really useful. I’d definitely be interested in using it in 2.8.

It looks great but if it is possible to edit the grid without “Proportional Editing”?
I mean a situation in which I would like the curve to influence only one edge.

How cool, thanks for comments guys!

Ok, I modified it to run on 2.8 as well:

Right now its a single script that runs on 2.79 an .80. In the next update it can be split into two scripts so it’s cleaner.

If you already have it you’ll get the updated version from a Gumroad email.

Hi @masterxeon1001, respect bro!
I’m not sure if this is what you meant, from another request I added being able to select connected points:


But this kind of “connected vertex” selection will always give you a curve with 2 control-points. If you want more control-points then you can use that “separate points” method, or maybe there could be a new way to mark where you want the control-points to be.

Hi. You can completely disable it in the Falloff Menu (W). Then only a single line of vertices will move around.


I added my email on that Gumroad page. If anybody has a suggestion, found a bug, refund etc. drop me an email.
I’m gonna work on some other things for this script, brb.

Can it be used in sculpture? Smooth with curves,Smooth with plane, flatten, pinch, etc.
It would be great if you could implement these functions.

Car modeling dream +1 for the 2.8 version too

Is there an option to restrict edits to certain axis? (including custom orientation).

Great stuff, this is what blender needs.
