Simple Loft

by space_component in Addons


Introducing the Simple Loft for Blender! 🌉✨ Seamlessly bridge edge loops on your selected mesh edge objects with just a one click. Whether you're a seasoned 3D artist or just starting out, this plugin streamlines your workflow and enhances your modeling capabilities. Say goodbye to changing modes and manual bridging and hello to smoother, more efficient modeling. With this method, you can loft many closed or open mesh edges with modifiers on it. It is a similar workflow that I used for many years working in Rhino that helped me think about construction lines more for better design results. You can bake shapes as new objects and keep construction lines for further adjustments ! Try it now and elevate your Blender experience! #Blender #Plugin #3DModeling #SimpleLoft #BridgeLoop

Version 1.0

- Please be careful with adding cuts and smoothness with complex lofts. Adjustments for this will come.

I will work on further development of the plugin adding more options I'm open to suggestions keeping in mind to keep the tool as simple as possible. Thanks for any support !
