I just installed the latest version of Blender v2.72 because I wanted to play around with its cell fracture addon.

I go into user preferences and check the box to activate cell fracture. Save Preferences and exit the menu.

I go into edit mode and select the cube in the scene and look for cell fracture on the left tool menu and it is not there. In all the tutorials/demos I have seen of this it has always just appeared in this menu.

Is there a step I have missed?

  • $\begingroup$ @GiantCowFilms Care to add that as an answer (perhaps with a bit more detail)? $\endgroup$
