Speedflow

Speedflow

A Blender Addon

« With Speedflow improve your workflow ! »

Speedflow is a group of 9 modals who allows you to improve drastically your modeling workflow.

With the addon, you can manage modifiers directly in the 3Dview very simply.

Select an object, launch a modal and add multiple modifiers on the fly, launch another modal, add others modifiers and make your modeling faster than if you had to create modifier by yourself.

What is a modal ?

A modal is a mode where you can perform multiple actions. In speedflow we created 9 modals and in each modal you can make differents things like create a modifier, change settings of this modifier, add subdivitions, move cursor etc.

Blender uses modals for the Knife tool, the Bevel Edges etc, this is very powerfull and we made 9 very powerfull modals who help you to speedup your workflow on blender.

Let’s see what each modal can do 😉
