A collection of useful helpers

db&w Tools been written out of personal need, due to user suggestions, as a playground or to complement our commercial plugins.

As of November 1st 2018, all new releases will only be available via Patreon. We currently develop at least one new plugin per month, as voted for by our patrons.

Patrons also get access to a closed Discord group where they can follow the progress of development and contribute their ideas and suggestions.

Two live video streams per month showcase the new developments, discuss the implementation of features and invite patrons to participate.

Currently the db&w Tools contain more than 40 nodes, many tools for Layout and some for Modeler. The latest addition is a set of tools to work with Bezier Splines in Layout.

Some notable tools are: Triplanar Mapper, Multi-Image Sampler, Random Image Mapper, the Spline Toolkit, the Logic nodes, Material Tweaker and the ubiquitous Channel Blender. Have a look at the Documentation for a full list and details on every tool.

New patrons get the current build including all the plugins once they join on Patreon.

Since Patreon doesn't allow for new patrons while we pause, you can also get the current version of the db&w Tools on gumroad.
