Wheel Generator Addon

Hi all! Wheel generator here, it can generate fully random wheels using about 110 parameters with user customization some of them. Blender versions 2.83+, 2.9, 2.91

Get it on gumroad: https://gumroad.com/l/Emccn

This project was started from idea is try to pack maximum variety wheel disk in one script, but it turned to be a little harder than one script. Already now it often generate interesting variants in combination with good shader look like quite usability. So I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for making this add-on. It will help many artists who make cars and aircrafts.

Have you planned to publish it on BlenderMarket too? Thanks in advance.

Hi, yeah sure. It usually takes a few days for the administration to confirm the publication.

Hi. Have you planned to add bikes wheels?

Hmm… Modern bicycle wheels have very standard and typical shapes, differing only in decals and colors. So only a few models are needed, such as 26er, 27.5er, 29er and 24-32 spokes for mtb, example.
I think no generator help is needed for this task :thinking:
However generator allows to make fictional wheels that look similar bikes wheels.

I don’t see an option to customize tire track shapes or disk shapes. Is there no way to customize those yet? Will it be down the roadmap? Procedural is cool but often times it means 90% of the results won’t fit the aesthetics of the vehicle that people would want it to match. Looks very promising otherwise.

You are right about advanced customization. It is planned to add more parameters available to the user and expand variability. However would like interface to remaining friendly and understandable
