If you're referring to while you're editing the scene, this isn't really possible. For animations, you should research Blender's Physics Simulation capabilities.

Separating objects based on disconnected geometry ("loose parts") can be accomplished through the operator bpy.ops.mesh.separate(type="LOOSE"). This operator attempts to separate all selected objects by loose parts. After its execution all separated objects, will be selected. If an object is initially selected, that doesn't contain loose parts, it will also ...

Youn need to plug the "UV" output from the texture coordinate node, into the image texture node, instead of the "Object" output. If you are using a default sphere, it should already be UV unwrapped.

You could use Ctrl+Z undo (or) Hit TAB, to go from Edit mode -> Object Mode. Then hit x (or) delete and delete object. Now, select your donut and Hit again TAB to Object mode -> Edit mode now select the part of the mesh that you want to make icing with by selecting each vertice individually (or) hit Numpad 1 to goto front view and use b (or) use c which ...

This is the result of using ngons. If you add the following edges so that the faces are all quads (on both top and bottom), this should resolve the issue; As you'd mentioned before, technically all Tris would work too. The issue is that you're dissolving the faces into a face of (what is generally considered) irregular dimensions/vertices. This doesn't ...

If you are referring to the frosting mesh intersecting the doughnut mesh, you can modify each vertex of the frosting so that it is not clipping. This process is easier in x-ray mode, because you can see each vertex. After enough time with the editor, you will get used to how to read the 3D space. Until then, you can select a vertex, then hit numpad ., and ...

If you're using a modifier, the original object will remain. You can even move it around, and it will be joined in the new locations in real time. If you would like to get rid of the object, you can either hide it (so you can continue to modify it) or (and this is more likely for your use) apply the modifier, which will permanently fuse the objects. ...

Blockquote "Update: Figured out, it doesn't work on planes without a thickness. Apply a Solidify modifier to the whole mesh of planes and the technique described by Denis works without crashing the program. Bools doesn't like flat surfaces apparently." You can use 'Weld Edges into Faces' function for flat surfaces. 1. go to edit mode 2. select all edges ...

No reason an edit mode bmesh cannot be used with edit ops. I prefer NOT to use the BMesh module, since the bpy operators suit my needs much better. They are not mutually exclusive. In answer to 1) For every vertex in object 1a) Select this vertex (v.select = True) 1b) Select neighbor vertices (bpy.ops.mesh.select_more()) 1c) Store normal ...

you have "proportion editing on", this means you'll edit all the vertex inside the "area" controlled by the "proportional size". disable it clicking on this icon:

Thanks to a hint from @batFINGER, turns out the best solution is simply to select an edge (Edge Select mode) with no face angles, go to Select > Select Similar > Face Angles. Then go to Face Select mode and un-subdivide. No scripting needed. For simple shapes, Dissolve Edges will work way better. But beware of face-groups that are selected and connected to ...

Building Blender with CUDA support currently requires the CUDA Toolkit 10.1. If you want to create your own build with CUDA support, you will have to install the required dependencies. If you have all the dependencies installed, correct build configurations and create a release build (make release), then it should have the same features as the official ...

I studied your file and I see there are quite some edits you have made on the metarig. Just for comparison, here's your metarig: And here's my version, where I only added the Cat metarig (edit note: you used the wolf rig, a little different in the names but that's not a big deal) and moved its bones around to fit your model: (Note I hid the facial & ...

Is there a better way to import the files that will give me a cleaner mesh? This is less a Blender question at this point than a Sketchup question; The import isn't making all the tris, Sketchup is. Perhaps see if there's a "quads" export option. Assuming that isn't an option (because if it is, you can stop reading), you have two options; 1: Retopologize ...

Could you post some screenshots of the screen about the problems? However, it may be enough to move the project to a new project file and see if the problem recurs, alternatively you can also make a copy of the object and delete the previous one, first I would tell you to try these simple procedures. Alternatively, do the objects have applied textures? ...

Clicking on the 'windows' object, changing to Weight Paint mode and clicking on each of the vertex groups in turn we can see that the small triangle of window is part of the 'door_fl' group in addition to the 'car_body' group (red highlighting means a weight of '1' is assigned): The small part of the window that is 'lagging behind' needs to be solely part ...

This script renames all data instances with one user object to the object's name. Just paste it into the Python console in Blender. objects = bpy.data.objects for obj in objects: if obj.data and obj.data.users == 1: obj.data.name = obj.name

I have figured it out! In this case, the object that is generated from a boolean operation should go through a triangulation.

The short answer is that your result is the expected from smooth shading. Forgive me if I cover info you already know here. A normal vector is a vector that points directly away from a surface. They are used to determine which way a face is 'facing' in terms of how it interacts with light. In Blender, these normal vectors don't always actually point ...

Go into front view 1 on numpad, go into wireframe mode tab and press B. Then you can select all of the faces you want. With the faces selected, press P and Separate by selection.

CtrlE Edge Menu > Bridge Edge Loops does more than you might think. Just the two loops at the ends were selected to be bridged, here. You could also use the tool to join the tube and the surface its rising from.

Merge by distance should work just fine. Try adjusting the distance value that pops up in the bottom left till it says removed X vertices at the bottom.

Okay so I'm dumb, the Inventor glass broke on a thickness function and only the rounded lip was defined, with a correct thickness the glass reflects and refracts as expected! Blender treats a glass plane differently than a glass mesh in terms of reflective properties, hence the issue of differing appearances!

Once your surface is subdivided with sufficiently small faces, you can use Mesh Tools -> Deform: Randomize to add roughness. Fine-tune using the tool parameters shown below. My result: If you prefer to have bumps instead of spikes, you can again Mesh Tools -> Add: Subdivide (with four or five cuts) and select Smoothness = 1.

A simple way to do that is to use a 'simple deform modifier' and its 'taper' function.

seems vert and edge selection was being extruded too, so they needed to be cleared with bpy.ops.mesh.select_all(action='DESELECT'), and mode_set flips to update mesh's selection, and then extrusion result: def Extrude(box,S,c1,c2): epsilon = 1e-04 mesh = box.data polygons = mesh.polygons for c in [c1,c2]: for i in [0,1,2]: ...

Add a mesh of the cutout(orange piece), enter it in the place want to be cut out, add a boolean modifier to the main mesh(letter),(its already at difference from default), click the eyedropper and select the mesh cutout(orange), apply the modifier and move away the mesh cutout(orange) to get a result you want.

The reason this happens is because you have 'subsurface' modifier enabled. What subsurface modifier does is basically adds extra geometry to your mesh. In your case, the type is set to Catmull-Clark which in short will basically smooth out your mesh. So if you start with a basic cube and apply the modifier on it, it will smooth it out and it will start ...

You are using Face selection mode. Switch to Vertex or Edge mode to enable the first extrusion.

Another take Before closing as dupe, thought I would put together another take on this for example sake. Added a method that simply yields n copies of the given object with a new name and suffix. If linked is False the object copies all share the same mesh. import bpy from bpy import context def object_duper(ob, name, n=1, linked=False): assert(ob) ...

Thanks @batFINGER and brockmann. To duplicate an object and add it to a collection, you could use the following code import bpy def duplicator( ob_name, new_ob_name, col_name, amount): new_obs = [] for i in range(1, amount): # get the object ob = bpy.context.scene.objects.get(ob_name) # copy, name and ...

by textures if you are meaning the materials they don't render in exported objects(read why: .fbx export why there are no materials or textures?) otherwise textures as images shoud should show up.
