Link Tools

by Lightbluespaces in Addons


SPEED UP SCENE PERFORMANCE, LOWER MEMORY USAGE AND RENDER FASTER! 

Link Tools finds duplicate meshes and merges, groups, or instances them.

This is especially useful when working with large and complex models or scenes, where duplicate meshes can be hard to find and combine manually.

Duplicate meshes can negatively impact performance as Blender is consistently using all the unique object data. This is why large scenes, heavy animations or meshes tend to run slowly.

To better optimize our scenes, instancing them will link their object data, speed up performance and greatly reduce memory costs.

  • Create Instance - Creates an instance of the active mesh by linking its data to the selected mesh via various pop-up options.
  • Unlink Instance - Unlinks the data/undoes the instancing from the selected meshes via various pop-up options.
