What is the Plating Generator?

The Plating Generator creates customised, reconfigurable panel lines and greeble details on top of your 3D Model.

This add-on is for 3D Modellers and concept artists who find it time consuming to create interlocking panels and details on 3D Models such as spaceship hulls, but still want a unique look and feel. It uses specially designed algorithms to generate different patterns.


  • Generate a panel lines or scatter smaller objects using a random seed.

  • Use on flat or curves surfaces.

  • Choose from a range of completely customizable plating patterns.

  • Create your own greeble objects libraries or choose from the standard default library.

  • The objects can either be created and edited separately or integrated into the base object.

  • Go back and change the patterns and greebles from a fixed control panel at any time when they are created as separate objects.

  • Create from a whole quad based mesh or on a sub selection of quad faces.

  • Control the depth of the grooves, heights of the panels, thickness of the grooves, make corners rounded, and add bevel effects.

  • Add your own materials and vary panel color through vertex colors.

  • Greebles can either be overlapping or non-overlapping.

  • Greebles can either conform to the shape of the face or maintain their proportions.

  • Option to completely remove the grooves and leave the plates intact.
