by MACHIN3 in Scripts and Addons

MACHIN3tools is a free, continuously evolving collection of blender tools and pie menus in a single customizable package.

Check out the previous videos for versions 0.3.13 and 0.3.14 as well as the original video introduction for version 0.3. There's also some (for now) lackluster documentation.

What's Deus Ex? It includes the Edge Constrained Transform tool.

The What's New? and Changelog pages are a great resource to get up to speed with the latest changes.
The changelog is written extra verbose so as to serve as light documentation.


  • in Blender 2.93 or Blender 3.0, from the zip file
  • or manually, in the filebrowser
    • great when updating, as it keeps all previous addon preferences
    • see MESHmachine installation for reference, it's the same process for any addon



Most of these tools are accessed via keymaps, that can be adjusted in the addon preferences. Others are accessed via the object or edit mode context menus.
