Belt Generator

by CGI Forge in Modifier Setups


Belt Generator - Geometry Nodes System

Create realistic belts and straps of any kind with this 100% procedural, customizable geometry nodes system!

What you get:

Whether for clothing, leather straps for armor or for saddles - with this versatile generator you can create highly realistic belts and all kinds of straps in no time. All you need is a curve object with which you can shape your belt. With many pre-made styles, settings for holes, end pieces & attachments you can then create exactly the belt you need. 

Also included are 3 realistic materials (leather, metal, stitches) optimized for both - Cycles and Eevee. They are pre set for the generators and will import automatically. If you like, you can of course change the materials in the modifier window!


Endless Possibilities!

Using interdependent slider values and different element styles, you can create just the belt you need! Different attachments, widths, number of holes, metal pieces, materials, etc. allow infinite combinations!



Modular Attachment System:

To give you as much creative freedom as possible, the Attachment System has been designed in a modular way. You can add as many attachments as you want and layer them to create very detailed and unique belts.
You can even create your own attachment objects and add it to your belt!



Premade Endpieces:

You can choose from multiple premade enpieces or just insert your own geometry

Automatic Connections:

You can use an object (an empty for example) to tell multiple belt generators where to connect. The object you select will then function as a control to set the position and rotation of the connector.



Settings:

A lot of settings can be intimidating, right? So, to give you full control over the system while maintaining clarity, the settings are sorted by belt element. In addition, default values have been set for all values. If you want the default back, hover with the mouse over the value and press backspace. 
The workflow is non-destructive thanks to the geometry nodes, giving you permanent control over your object.
