Random Flow is a random mesh generator designed for fast and easy hard surface prototyping and concept art. This is the beta version with a lot more functionalities expected in the future.

Quickly create kitbash assets for concept art. Mix the functions to create even more shape variety.
I saw this " Random Flow Lite " in the Creative Bundle and “Random Flow” itself.
Are there any differences ?
It’s in the docs. The ones with the * are not in the lite version and the ones with ** are only in the lite version.
This is one of the most simple (yet powerful) add-ons to create sci-fi hull platings & greeble.
I can’t wait for the update!
Updated to version 1.1.0 with a lot more functionalities added.
Don’t be shy , don’t hesitate to inform publicly about changes in new versions:
Random Flow v1.1.0
- Max values increased and uncapped. Manually enter a higher number to uncap and set new maximum.
- Added Triangulate option in Random Extrude, Random Panels and Random Tubes. Tri Loop toggle in Random Extrude is only used for the Subdivide Faces solver.
- Loop ratio in Random Extrude now uses 0-100% instead of 0-1.0.
- Added Smooth Falloff for Random Extrude, Random Panels and Random Tubes.
- Clip Center can now be toggled off per axis. Added symmetry smoothing per axis as well.
- Clamp Overlap (Bevel) toggle in Random Tubes to clamp beveled points.
- Removed Faces Only toggle in Random Extrude
- Added Individual Panel Size toggle in Random Extrude. This allows for per loop object panel sizing.
- Added Margin property in Random Panels. This creates spaces between the panel islands.
- Added Bevel properties in Random Panels. This uses a min/max bevel offset value. Each point is a unique seed.
- Set Origin Location property swapped. It’s now Negative | Positive.
- Added Tag Verts operator which works in combination with Quad Slice.
- Added Tagged in Origin property of Quad Slice. This limits the projected cuts from tagged vertices using the Tag Verts operator.
- Remove Singles now renamed to Remove 2EV’seed
- Added Remove Doubles in Quad Slice. This only affects geometry set in the Geometry property.
- Removed Remove Face Doubles in Clean Up operator. Too unstable for Random Extrude.
- Added Show Usage Info button which shows basic usage information. Can be toggled of in the add-on preferences.
- Added “Use confirm menu for random operators” toggle in the add-on preferences. This enables you to use the confirm type redo pop-up menus instead which can use the static redo panel in the bottom left corner of the viewport. (See Redo Menu/Panel chapter in the documentation.)
Often, add-on developers add changelogs at the bottom of their Blendermarket/Gumroad page: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/retopoflow
Really, this is the best addon around for adding details on hard surface objects. I bought it and I can confirm that it is so. Hope that it will evolve into an even more powerful tool.
Add some bases -and even joints- for the pipes too please. It would add a lot of realism to them.
I do mean something as the ‘Piperator’ addon does:
It uses import objs something I wist to avoid. But this is todo in the future updates.
