Notes / Description:
Greeble Tool: Extrude and populate model surfaces with shapes to add realism and dimension. On top of the typical choices found in most greebling software to enhance your work, there is also the ability to expand your arsenal with custom greeble shapes and objects. Objects can be duplicated across the surface as Instances or Render Instances allowing a rich amount of surface detailing while saving memory and time.
Greebler is a powerful and integrated set of three plugins for adding greeble and nurnie detail geometry onto polygonal mesh objects. Nurnies can be represented as polygon geometry, instance objects, or render instances (R11.5+ only).
What is a 'greeble' and 'nurnie'?
A greeble or nurnie is a small piece of detailing added to an object surface so as to break up the surface and add visual interest. The purpose is to add complexity to the object and yield the impression of greater size. It is essentially the small detailed technical part of a larger object. You will typically see greebling in movie special effects, particularly of the science fiction genre. In Greebler, the terms 'greeble' and 'nurnie' have been differentiated to mean 'surface feature' and 'surface object', respectively.
