Mesh Editor v1.4 Update

  • May 10, 2016

The latest update of Mesh Editor is now ready. With this release there is improved support for Unity 5.x and for the Mac. While I tried to continue support for Unity 4.x for as long as possible, it has now become unmanageable due to the major differences between the two versions.

All of the programs that use a hotkey now check for both the Ctrl and Command key by default as well as the custom hotkey.

New features for Mesh Editor v1.4:
Added: Edge Splitting
Added: Triangle/Hole Filling
Added: Individual UV Editing
Added: Procedural Geometry – Basic 2D/3D Shapes
Added: Modify Normals
Added: Weld Selected Vertices/Edges/Triangles
Added: Un-Weld Selected Vertices/Edges/Triangles
Added: Join Vertices
Added: Join Edges
Added: Check For Unused Vertices and Zero Area Triangles
Added: Dedicated OBJ Export Function
Added: Rotate/Translate pivot point handles
Added: UV and Normal colors to saved settings
Added: Custom Skins
Updated: Snap To Grid (Removed check boxes and changed to current axis handle only)
Updated: Changed the extrude key combination from Shift to Ctrl+Shift
Fixed: Update selection when switching between unique and coincident vertices/edges
Fixed: Edge selection/deselection when Coincident is off

Construction For Unity

  • December 9, 2015

Hi All,

The latest addition to the collection has now been submitted. It should be available for download with Mesh Maker within a couple of days and the standalone version should be available sometime next week.

The Mesh Maker Collection

The new program is called Construction and it has been designed with ease of use in mind. Using a grid layout makes placing the walls, floors, tiles, roofs, stairs and other features of the building a simple task. By combining these features you can quickly create new custom houses, apartments, factories and other structures for your projects.

To see what the program can do you can check out the following videos…

Latest Update

  • October 7, 2015

Hi All,

The latest update is now available. Many of the changes requested during the sale have been addressed and some new features added. The main difference is the addition of a splash screen with quick links to the websites, forums and tutorials (now in PDF format instead of Word.)


You will also find some settings for changing the behavior of the main menu, like changing the color of the flashing or disabling it.

The news is displayed from the website at MeshMaker.com. So if there is some news or important information about a program that wasn’t covered at the time of release I can now update you in real time.

The programs have been released for versions 4.6.2, 5.0 and 5.2.1 of Unity.

Unity is no longer supporting inline shader code, which resulted in pink lines in the latest versions, so all of the programs have been updated to use a separate shader.

The following is a list of most of the changes that come with the update.

Mesh Maker:

New splash screen
Real time news updates
Resources folder renamed to Files
New settings for Main Menu
Fixed namespace clashes
Main folder is now moveable within the project folder

Mesh Editor:
New option to show normals
New option to recalculate normals
New option to recalculate tangents
Update UVs now works with normal editing
Locked object stays locked after delete, etc
Fix to Snap To Grid
Fix to shader warning
Fix to handle position after extrude
Fix to double sided normals
Added tool to generate secondary UV set
Added tool to recalculate normals

3D Brush:
Added option to generate random names

Prefab Maker:
Added clear warning if selected folder is not empty
Suppressed log warnings if materials and submeshes don’t match

I will continue to add the new features for Mesh Editor, such as edge splitting and filling holes, but I wanted to get this update out asap.

New Prefab Maker

  • August 3, 2015

Hi All,

A new addition to the Mesh Maker collection has been submitted to the Unity Asset Store for review.

Prefab Maker quickly combines objects and prefabs, atlases the textures and creates a prefab for you, all with just a few clicks.

The texture atlasing is handled automatically but you have the option to manually move, rotate and scale the textures for the best fit. Creates small swatches with a solid color for objects with no textures so that they can be grouped by the same shader. You have full control over the atlas settings to output either highly compressed or hi-res textures. The program also comes with tools to position and center the pivot point for the new prefab.

The following video demonstrates the features in more detail…

The screenshots and video below will give you an idea of how much the program has changed since the last version.

New Mesh Maker Introduction Video

  • May 19, 2015

Hi All,

In this introduction I try to cover the basics of using all of the tools to give you an idea of how the tools work and what they can do. There’s a lot to cover so even a quick overview of 11 tools is going to be quite a long video. Please check out the latest videos for 3D Brush and Mesh Cutter to see the full potential of these great programs. Geom 2.0 is a great improvement over its predecessor and I will be making new videos to cover all of the features that have been added recently.
