Add-on updates in Blender 2.81
Good news for all BlenderKit enthusiasts.
Huge influx of members and the growing number of uploads kept us very busy last month, but we managed to get some new features working in our add-on that will be shipped with Blender 2.81.
We added the right-click menu for assets in Asset Bar which shortens access to old and new features like
- Search assets by author - was only shortcut before
- Open author's website - was only shortcut before
- Search similar
- Replace model - replaces the active model in your scene
- Delete asset - delete your own uploads
You can set thumbnail size in preferences, so no more suffering with tiny thumbnails on 4K monitors.
Add-on now works correctly also when Asset Bar is off. This means your downloads will append to the scene anytime. For this a larger part of the code had to be reworked.
Many bugs have been fixed.
We are cooking more advanced features that we didn't manage to squeeze into this release, so stay tuned for more cool stuff directly in the add-on.
Do you like the new features in the add-on? Speed up development of BlenderKit, support your favorite artists and get unlimited access to almost 2,000 assets.
We are happy to announce that BlenderKit database now offers over 1000 assets. These were uploaded by over 60 active creators.

BlenderKit introduces add-on for Blender 2.8. While there are still many changes in Blender happening, which may cause the add-on will work today and not tomorrow, the add-on should be mostly working fine, and we try to keep the new version updated with the latest Blender builds.
We are happy to announce the release of something we've been working on for a long time.
BlenderKit is a new online platform made for Blender users, creators, and developers. We hope to bring a new momentum into the open source world by introducing several innovations we've been working on.
