Modular Tree

I’vedownloaded these older versions you mentioned. In 2.83 the addon wont show after install. 2.92 gives the “Upgrade to 2.8x required” warning.

I tried the mtree 2.83 branch as well but same warning.

However, i got the harvester version to work somehow but that version seems incomplete (like no leave creation).

I think i wait for the official version for 2.93

Oh yes, I saw that as well, but honestly the version we have that I sent in that link is really good. I don’t see any reason to need the 4.0 version for Blender 3.0 just yet, and when we finally get it, it’ll be a welcome surprise! :slight_smile: Let Maxime do their thing, they’ve already developed an AWESOME addon haha

I added the ability to vary parameters as branches grow:

@Maxime does m tree addon is full fledge now? I download the 4.0.0 alpha but node option didn’t show up on the 3d viewport menu. I just dwnload the zip file and install through preference.

It’s really great. I want to point out couple of things.

  1. Seed Value: Trunk node had random slider, but there is no seed value so every trunk gets the same look for same random value

  2. Crash when setting value to 0 : some properties set 0 crashes blender.

Really like the 4.0 with the performance improvement. Great work!

How can we use (download) this updated version?

It is still in alpha so there are many things lacking. You can find the nodes in the node editor.

Simply download the latest alpha and install it.
Make sure to uninstall the previous version first (you might need to manually delete the addon folder due to Windows doing Windows things) .

…well hell. There they are. :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh, and excellent job on the addon. Not only does it produce better trees in general, but it gives a lot more granular control, letting me fill in, tweak, and edit bits and pieces of the trees with far more ease.

I wanted my leaves, so I decided to do things manually by grabbing the verts on the end of one branch, selecting similar by amount of adjacent faces, growing the selection, then duplicating and separating the geometry to serve as the base for a geonode setup.

This is what I got. It’ll work until we get our nodes.

…and the blue leaves are there because I thought they looked cool.

Very nice !

the leaves distribution will be done with geo nodes, you can probably make it work right now without having to edit anything since there is a “radius” attribute added by the addon.

I saw that, but didn’t pay much attention to it at the time. I’ll goof around with it, and see what I can do.

Hi, I am trying to install this, downloaded the windows version and the clicking on the check box to activate the addon in the preferences window is not working.
Anyone else experiencing this?
