Geometry Nodes

Sure, what do you want to do?

Haha it was just a joke, I have used MagicaCSG and know its power. The demo is also a proof of concept what you can do with the current implementation of Geometry nodes. I will release the .blend soon after ironing out some inefficiecies.

I want to take the vector position of an individual vertex to move it, I’ve been looking around for a while and I can’t find out how to do it

No its currently not not possible to edit data through the spreadsheet “editor”, though it is expected to be implemented soon

Ok thank you, I would find that very useful

I’ve been wondering, how’s the design for that ? I mean the spreadsheet represents the outputs of a node tree, by definition it’s read-only, or what meaning would user input even have ? does it add an attribute fill node when the user edits a field ? how does that make sense ?

I think the idea is to edit the initial geometry destructively through a spreadsheet. This will especially be useful when we have a more unified attribute system (e.g. Vert groups, vert colors, uvmaps, and positions, being the same thing-just different types )

Oh right okay, that makes sense. Yeah there’s an interface for vertex groups in edit mode but there was never the same thing for vertex colors, not sure why. Good thing if we can manipulate data so precisely

We already see a little bit of this ‘unified attribute system’ in the experimental point cloud object.


Currently there is no way to assign or paint them, but I imagine it is most likely planned.

Hi everyone. Beginner’s question, sorry about that. If this is not the place please let me know.
I can’t find the vertex_normal attribute in geometry nodes.
I have tried in 2.92, 2.93 LTS, 2.93.1 candidate, 3.0.0 alpha.
I am following different tutorials. Doing the same things but the attribute is not appearing.

What I am missing?
I will really appreciate your guidance.
Kind regards.

They removed the vertex normal attribute in experimental 2.92. I have no idea why. You will have to use the face normal attribute to achieve such effects.

Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
The vertex_normal was perfect for what I need. I will keep trying options with the face normal one.
Kind regards.

You can still convert Face normals to Vertex Normals with Attribute Convert node.

geometry node sounds so intresting

What is the new raycast node for? Can someone give me an example? It’s the weirdest node so far, more specialized than attribute sample texture or proximity.

It can be setup to shrinkwrap an object. You could also use it to generate mesh shadows. Mostly I imagine it being used in remesh workflows.

I still don’t get it really, but here’s an explanation

I have vague feeling that it will be abused in completly different manner.

I’m using Raycast node to snap instances to terrain or “flatten” terrain under roads or railway tracks… see a little sneak peek here https://youtu.be/m_IHcJ1vwgE?t=489
