I am trying to transform blender interface my idea is to display only the 3d view, showing only the green area:

enter image description here

I want to remove the main toolbar, timeline, outliner and properties panels

So my first question is, is that possible ?

The second is, can someone point me in the right direction =)

Thanks in advance

Ghus

Press Ctrl-Up Arrow (Cursor up) while the mouse pointer is in the viewport.

This wouldn't remove the main toolbar but is reversible by Ctrl-Down Arrow (Cursor Down).

You could get rid of the OS/Window-Manager decorations using Menu: Toggle Fullscreen Alt-F11.

What you (probably) want is this:

enter image description here

Select 3D View Full and drag the main menu away.

From python you can select a manually prepared screen layout (save in the .blend) by:

bpy.context.window.screen = bpy.data.screens['screen_name']

  • $\begingroup$ Hi thanks for your suggestions but what I was really looking for was a script to make my changes more definitive and have a easy way to share this modifications. $\endgroup$

Would it accomplish your mission to follow the instructions at https://www.blender.org/manual/getting_started/basics/interface/window_system/arranging_frames.html ?

  • $\begingroup$ hi bob thanks for the quick reply, i would prefer a scripting since i pretende to share this with other persons. Basically I am trying to make a simple 3d modelling program without all of this features. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Ghus The layout is saved in the .blend file, so you could distribute it that way.. $\endgroup$
