        [Addon]DECALmachine

        [Addon]DECALmachine

        DECALmachine is a blender addon - a set of tools to simplify and automate working with mesh based decals, which in turn facilitates quick design thinking, iteration and exploration. It does all that in a very non-committal, non-destructive way.

        DECALmachine is supposed to be used with Blender's Cycles renderer.

        Since v1.4 decals can be exported to Unity3D, Unreal Engine 4, etc.

        Check out the release trailer, the 1.3.5. trailer and crate demo  on youtube.


        See What's New in v1.4.2

        INSTALLATION

        See the installation guide for instructions.

        Go over the detailed documentation, including a custom decal creation guide, the export section and FAQs.
