Auto Blueprint

Generate a blueprint scene of the selected(s) object(s) in one click !

Download latest (right click, save Target as)

Description

layouts available:

  • 2 views aligned: face - side
  • 3 views aligned: face - 3/4 - side
  • 4 views: side - face - top - back
  • 4 views Show: side - face - back - isometric (three quarter left/up)

Options:

  • Considered one object: if ticked, all selected objects will be considered as one to shoot (carefull experimental option, it will simply try to merge object, you may want to do it manually and leave it unticked). Else there will be one blueprint scene generated per object selected.
  • Draw all edge : mark all edges as freestyle on the mesh and activate edge mark on all view
  • Background: set a world sky (blueprint style), else leave transparent background
  • Render at finish: render directly the generated scene(s) (exported correctly named in a "Blueprint" subfolder at blend's file root location)

The generated blueprint might not be perfect, but it'll be a good start and will be easily tweakable trough well prepared freestyle line set

/!\ Unstable, may crash blender The script usually Works, but many problems to patch and sometimes crashes (if so you may want to reopen and retry). It was develloped as an exercise and a hobby, don't have time to work on it anymore. So be sure to save your scene before launching ;)
