Enhance your workflow with this awesome and carefully designed sculpt widget!


> Read Documentation <


  • Tested on Blender 2.83 LTS and 2.90 release. Don't use in 2.91 at the moment cause it's in alpha stage and devs are touching so much the OpenGL drawing code so may be unstable!


Where can I find the tool?

  • HOLD 'Space' key to trigger it on Sculpt mode, release so it goes away! It will be filled with default brushes and tools for you (you can change them later or create other toolset).
  • Addon panel can be found in 3D Viewport's sidebar > 'Sculpt' tab > 'Sculpt Wheel' panel.

How can I update the addon?

To update it in a safe way:

1. Disable it (uncheck the addon in the preferences).

2. Click at 'Remove' to remove the addon from Blender.
3. Close Blender and open it again.
4. Install new addon version.


Steven Scott:

Blender Nation (Review by Metin Seven):


  • Color picker will be available for when 2.91 is released and stable as Sculpt Vertex Color are part of 2.91+. It will include different kind of color pickers and different modes (complementary, split, triad, tetradic...) and features (color-space slicing, input values...). Also will include color palettes to store colors (also recent colors).
