Node Sharer Addon

I just came across to this amazing addon: Node Sharer

It allows you to share your procedural material setups as a text string. You simply copy & paste it! Here is a test string to try out (You’ll obviously need the addon to paste):


Discord channel for the addon:


I really like the idea behind the add-on: being able to quickly share nodes with other people just by copy+pasting a short a paragraph of text (characters and digits) is very convenient.

If the add-on gets widely used, it might be a game changer regarding how Blender users share nodes with friends and wherever they want (chat rooms, Facebook, Skype, Discord, Twitch, etc.). It’s often easier, on social medias, to share a text, rather than a .blend file.


I’m looking onto this. Great idea.

We have this same kinda thing at work for our internal shader graph. It’s definitely very handy. Can email or send in an IM quick. To paste across a node layout quickly. Instead of sending a shader file or whatnot.

Edit: seems like this addon pastes the entire material however and not nodes themselves?

Yes, it shares the material. I believe it can be improved further to share only selected nodes or node groups etc.
