Just wanted to show off my very first blender add-on. It’s a smart sharpen addon. It works similar to the way Autodesk Maya’s “Soften/Harden Edges” feature works, by allowing you to automatically sharpen/soften a selection based on edge angle.

Hopefully someone finds it useful! Enjoy! :slight_smile:
Thanks!

Hi thanks for the addon.
I noticed that when you install the downloaded .zip file, all the files end up in the root.
So you might get a lot of questions like " I installed the addon but it doesn’t show up in Blender".

  • What your visitors can do: Extract the .zip file first, close blender and add the whole folder in the directory where your blender addons are installed.
  • Or what you can do: be sure that there is an extra folder, so that when people install the addon, the files go to a folder, not in the root.
  • What users can do when it is to late, already installed addon and doesn’t show up:
    Open the directory where addon is installed, the root. And open the zip.file. Then see what files are in the .zip file and delete those files in your root directory. Then to install the addon, see first step.

( In noticed also the we cannot filter the addon in a workspace.)
