List of addons that work with 2.8

News per 6/6/2019: Blenderartists is a great website but for a good overview of addons a dedicated website is needed. There fore I started a fresh new website dedicated to Blender 2.80 addons. It’s focussed on Free addons, and secondly paid addons later. Free and paid will be separated to avoid “pollution”.

Here is the website:

Please keep it gentle because it’s brand new and it needs time to find the weaks and strengths. (Don’t give it to much publicity yet for example). If you have suggestions, ideas or you want to collaborate, let me know.

How to add your add-on to this list? (Anyone has acces to edit it and I am not going to do it anymore.).

  • Click on the orange pencil here on top which shows a number in front of it.

  • There are three categories: Free, Paid and Built in.

  • Simply add your add-on under one of the categories with a title, short description and one or two links.

Updated version of Google Sheets with search, category and UI. Have added all except payed and still some work to do with adding what is free and not.
To add more add-ons: Go to the “Add new here” tab and scroll down and to where there is a free spot.

Group pro (yes yes!, black Friday today, I tested it and could work with it within a minute. Very intuitive , blender 2.8).

And my own Global Shader. It’s a shader making extensive use of drivers. With that you can define a colour palette globaly and settings like roughness, bump strength, metalicness, etc.

See top post for links.

Now Toonkit for Cycles support 2.8 also.
