Human Ear Generator : API new ear

Here is a configurable ear generator for Blender 2.80 or higher. It is not an addon but a blend
Have a look at the demo-tuto : Demo_tuto Ear generator

Excellent. I praise your absolute knowledge of human anatomy. An ear is such a precise thing. You did a really useful and good job. :+1:

Thank you @Rimpotche for this script.
I am still amazed by the number of tweaking options.
:+1:

Just for your information, I loaded the .blend file in the latest Blender 2.90 Daily Build and I got this message:


I know this is not your script that generated this warning (Blender did, for security reasons), hense my following question:

  • Do you plan to make your script like other add-ons? (to activate it in Preferences > Addons)?

Awesome script, thanks again!

Hi, xan2622 !

Thank you very much for your feedback.
The number of tweakings is really reduced compared to what it could be to really generate all kinds of ears. For example, yesterday, I was looking at Dalaï’s ears and I should add sliders to get them ! :wink:

It is my very first script in python and my knowledge is almost null. But I am now diving in it !
I tried to make an addon but the console did not like that at all. So I decided to stick with the blend.
Anyway, the addon would have to load a blend, so…

Do you think that the warning you got has to do with the fact that I checked “Register” in the Text Editor ?

Thanks again for your concern. I hope my script will be useful.

Thank you too, Kabu !

I have no idea. I know nothing about Python.

But I have been told that the warning is normal (it’s a good thing).
If Auto Run Python Scrips is disabled in Preferences > Save & Load, Blender warns the user before execution of scripts.

Please add them. :pray: Don’t hesitate to add more sliders for “fine-tuning” other parts of the ear.


I have been trying to create Thandie Newton’s ears and I wish your script had a way to set the size of the Antitragus (to almost make it disappear or to flatten this area).


btw, I think that you can remove the Cover (API New Ear). This is unnecessary, imo.

Hi @Rimpotche.

Just out of curiosity, wouldn’t you plan to create a 3D teeth / dentition generator, would you ?
:grimacing: :tongue: :tooth:

Hi Xan !
Teeth are not my concern, I am sorry. I made my addon because I saw so many outstanding sculpts of heads with poor ears and I am so interested in the different shapes ear can have. It took me two hard months to code it without any ground knowledge of Python.
So I will never write any other addon !
But thanks for your interest.
Friendly regards
