Instance Collection Toolbox

by BoUBoU in Scripts and Addons

What is an instance collection ?

It's an object which refers to a collection content linked from another file, or from your main file.
This way, you can get multiple copies of linked data very easily.


What is this toolbox for ?

This toolbox contains some helpful tools when you are using instance collection, but it also works for meshes :

  • renaming from its data : the object or instance collection will be renamed regarding to its data (mesh or collection)
  • offset collection center from selection : the "center" of each selected objects' collection will be well set
  • convert meshes to instance collection : each selected object will be converted in an empty instance collection, which allows you to use collection instead of meshes
  • randomize elements : this tool will change randomly from your selection to element in a defined library
  • convert selection into a new instance collection
  • and many more to come ! (one day)


Why it's usefull ?

Because Instance collections is one of the best feature of blender.
