New Features in 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.

Foliage by Iwo Pilc

Stones, rocks, pieces of wood can be sometimes photoscanned. But plants are still a domain of hard-core modeling. This really takes time, skill and precision, and a lot of observation what "natural" really means.

Free Kittens!

As a late Christmas gift, we are releasing our BlenderKit mascot kitten for free. Now, you can make any scene insta-cute! The kitten is poseable and can be animated (by now 2.79 only, because of a hair-import bug in 2.8 beta).
