Apologies if this seems very basic, but I am really struggling with how to do this and am not sure where I am going wrong.

I have a found an L-System addon on Github (https://github.com/krljg/lsystem) that I am trying to use in Blender.

I have tried downloading the .zip file and saving within my Blender Installation: C:\Desktop\Blender Foundation\Blender 2.82\2.82\scripts\addons but I cannot find it when I install the file in User Preferences -> addons.

I have tried installing both the .zip folder and extracting it then installing the .init file but nothing shows up in the addons.

Is there something I am missing or doing wrong? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


As stated in the readme.md, you would have to copy the lsystem folder to your add-on directory:

Copy lsystem directory over to F:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Blender\2.80\scripts\addons or wherever your blender installation is.

  • Linux: $HOME/.config/blender/<version>/
  • OSX: /Library/Application Support/Blender/<version>/
  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\<version>\
