DECALmachine is a blender addon, which through mesh Decals, allows for surface detailing in a very non-committal, non-destructive, UV-less way. And as such, it represents an alternative approach to hard surface texturing.
DECALmachine 1.9.2 works ONLY with Blender 2.80 and higher!
DECALmachine packs 22 tools and 108 assets, unlocking a whole new workflow. At $10 per tool and $1 per asset that's a value of $330.
