Power to the Artist

Focus is an interface addon for Blender 2.8, providing an immersive environment for 3D work. Replacing panels and docked editors with pie menus, the new interface is simple and distraction-free, just you, and the art

The addon is split into three main categories, the UX Toolkit, Modelling Toolkit and the Substance Toolkit. Each one is a collection of pie menus catering to that workflow. The UX Toolkit is for general Blender functions and navigation, the Modelling toolkit for specialised mesh and modifier menus and functions, with the Substance Toolkit containing functions and menus for Substance Painter integration with Blender.
