Real Runes - Symbol Modelling Add-On

by Blue Nile 3d in Modifier Setups

Check a tutorial / video guide in the ''Video Demo'' above.

Real Runes is a growing library of symbols and glyphs.

They can be added to any curve with one click.

General Use Case:

  • Add a curve object / make a curve from mesh edges.
  • Press 'Apply Runes to selected curve'
  • Choose your desired Rune category and Rune Type
  • Iterate and style your Runes with various parameters

Naxi Dongba pictographs

Real Rune has currently 80 Rune types. Some Rune types such as 'Naxi' contain more than 1000 pictographs.

Historical - for a touch of realism

Magical - for spells and sigils

Latin - for writing custom, readable text

Fictional - for inspiration and fan art

Read the 'Real Runes - Font Guide and Sources' included in both free and paid versions to check all available Rune Types and their histories.

Easy customization:

Being powered by Geometry Nodes means customization is quick and easy. Runes can be extruded, smoothed, beveled and more straight from the add-on / modifier.

To install or not to install

If you love add-ons, great! Install Real Runes and use it like any other add-on. Don't want another add-on? Super, append the node group and use it like any other Geometry Nodes asset
