I try to build Blender and have a customize matcap list. I have already successfully change the default matcap to my own one. And now I wanna to add more on the list like the reference image below.

I changed the CMakeLists file in datafiles folder and build again but nothing happened. I found that there is a entry called matcap_icon on Blender API document page.


My question is. Is it possible to change? How do I find it? Thanks!

    $\begingroup$ Questions about developing blenders source code are considered off topic here, only python addon programming is accepted. From a quick look I see three places that would need adjusting, source/blender/editors/datafiles/CMakeLists.txt source/blender/editors/include/ED_datafiles.h and source/blender/editors/interface/interface_icons.c $\endgroup$ – sambler Jun 13 '17 at 10:46
