Blender Envelope Suite

The Blender Envelope Suite

Warning: all this documentation is still very uncomplete and possibly erroneous!


This is a tool set written in python that helps in setting up character rigs including working with envelopes. Right now it consists of 3 tools:

  • Armature Symmetry - A tool for creating perfectly symmetrical armatures. It takes on side of an armature and mirrors its configuration to the other side.
  • Envelope Symmetry - Similar to Aramture symmetry, but helps in creating symmetrical envelope setups.
  • Envelope Assignment - The command that analyses the envelopes and creates vertex groups from them.

All tools are available in Object Mode in the menu Object->Scripts->*


The tool simply uses normal mesh objects as envelopes. Any shape can be used as long as its convex.
