Set up the random scale and rotation ranges and save tons of time, precisely scattering dozens of new objects in seconds!


Material Painter

Discover probably the best way to add materials to your objects. Paint them directly in the 3d viewport just with a mouse click. Limit painting to the specified areas, like sharp edge, material slot or seam. Generate automatic UV maps when painting.


Asset management with Asset Browser integration

Now, when you save assets with Flow, the supported types will also be accessible with the Blenders Asset Browser, just if you connect your Flow Library to it! That gives you one more option for manage your assets in the comfortable way. The categories, subcategories and previews for the Asset Browser are also created automatically, and look way better than automatic Blender preview generate!


Asset properties in the panel

Create special node groups for your objects materials, that will appear in the panel, for easier workflow. You may also easily create custom properties and connect them to almost any value in Blender, to give even more customization possibilities for your assets!


Other amazing tools for easier workflow

You can find even more amazing tools in Flow, just like the Instance Tools or brush tools. All to make the workflow with Blender even easier and more enjoyable.

Asset Management

The most important function is management of your asset library. But not just one library. You may connect to the plugin as many libraries as you want, to keep your assets organized by theme, projects, asset package or in any other way you desire. What you can manage with Flow? Just check below!

Now the supported asset types, like Objects, Collections, Materials, Worlds will be also accessible with the Blenders Asset Browser!

Models

The essence of Flow. Fill your scene with dozens of objects within a few minutes. Just select the category, subcategory, object and add the asset to your scene. Select one of the available instancing modes (Local instance collection, linked instance or editable) to work with it just the way you want.

Materials

You don't need to search for your materials in old projects anymore!. Simply add any material from the library directly into your object with the help of the plugin!

Batch add Objects & Materials

With Flow, you can now spare even more time, by adding multiple assets and materials into your library at once! Read more at our blog


Geometry Nodes

Save & load your Geometry Nodes modifiers fast and easily! Spare your time on creating the new preset from scratch each time. You can also use one of our exemplary grasses presets

Brushes

Save tons of time on creating your sculpt and image painting brushes from scratch, again and again. Save your brushes in the library, and make them re-usable just anywhen you want. You can also add any textures from the library straight into your brushes

Textures & Node Groups

You don't need to use filebrowser to search for your textures. You can add your image textures with a few mouse clicks. You can even add ALL the textures from the directory just with a mouse click. Auto-connect function can also handle connecting images to your nodes

HDRi & Worlds

Add HDRi automatically like any other Flow asset. Easy tools will also make it simplier to adjust your environment from the panel level. You can also save & load the whole worlds to use them later.

Brush Tools

Assets creation is easier than ever!

Fill your libraries with assets really simply and directly from your scene! You do not actually need to prepare any separate Blender files to be able to use the assets, the plugin will do that automatically for you, creating even the preview image in the background! You can add the asset of any type, that is suppoerted by the plugin (described above)

Flow can automatically:

  • Add all supported asset types to your library
  • Render thumbnails for created assets (models and materials)
  • Add your assets to the Asset Browser, including adding Categories, Subcategories and rendered previews!
  • Copy 'external' textures into Flow Library

Why Flow?

  • Using this addon will make your workflow extremely faster. I've reduced the time of developing the architectural visualization project (house) from more than one week to one day!
  • You may transfer your libraries between any Blender versions, but even between any devices! Working with a team? Create ONE library that will be accessible for all users
  • Add ANY number of libraries. You can sort your assets within libraries just in any way you need. You do not need to mix your archviz assets with futuristic hard surface assets. Just make separate libraries and switch between them in the addon panel
  • You can transfer third-party libraries assets into Flow – just to have everything in one place. It's usually quite simple, and the file structure is explained in the documentation
  • Flow is really easy to use! Even the beginner will be able to use most tools. We've also created the comprehensive documentation for this addon and we are working on tutorials for our channel
  • The startup asset pack is included. We're providing the small package of assets for a good start. Maybe it's not much, but may be the great start point to create your own extraordinary library.
