CLF Greeble
This plugin creates simple "greebles" in your model.
CLF Greeble

This script adds Greebles to all selected faces or to all loose geometry if nothing is selected

Select the faces you would like to be greebled.  Then run the script (Plugins> Chris Fullmer Tools > Greeble).  Put in min/max height for Greebles.  You can also add an offset to be used. A negative value is an inset face.  The Greeble offset or original face will change which face gets greebled.  I think that playing with that option will help explain it.  You can also specify a scale amount as a percent.  100 is no scale, 20 is smaller, 200 is twice as large as the original.


Well this is the exact model my client suggested me, some parts were different as the curves were not too much but the rest of the detailing are very evident, Custom Paper Service have helped me got here, maybe I can take few ideas from here.

hey you should create a plugin to embed textures on curved surfaces without fragmenting these should already know what I mean .... has put a logo or photo on a curved wall and shall be distributed in many pedasitos and not rendering moento looks good ... something like textures 3d max or cinema 4d engaging very well and makes them look more realistic render you what I suggested to you and you know easas create plugins and things that I did not understand but I usually use much ........

Love your job, but there are few issues in this extension. It doesn't work when i want work with decimals in the offset values
Values betwen (0 to1 or 0 to -1; like .2 , .3 etc) it only works with integers or numbers above 1 or under -1. For height is ok, i can work with any number there. Thanks againg for your work.

Hi Chris,

First of all, thanks for all your plugins, Im a big fan since years!

Regarding greeble, in what way is it different from Protude ?
My point is avoid having redondant plugins doing very similar things.

Thank you

Thanks Everyone!  For downloading, the Extension warehouse is available directly inside of SUI 2013.  If you open the EW from inside of SU 20913, you just click the "install" button and it will install it for you.  If you are just browsing the EW site outside of SU, you can click on the "Download" button and that will download a .rbz file for you.  You can install .rbz files from inside of SU 8 or 2013 in the Preferences > Extensions window.  Last resort is to change the ,rbz to .zip and manually extract the file and put them into your plugins folder and SU will recognize your newly installed plugin the next time it opens.

Hope that helps,



thank you very much!!!

how can I download it? thank u

This is my first download of your scripts and you might want to tell that it is a zip. The file I got down had no indication of that and it threw me on a bit of a chase to solve it.
Anyways, thanks! Now I'll play with the plugin.

Seriously, you can turn a SQUARE into extraordinary and complex shapes by re-applying the Greeble plugin. It's really fun to mess with, and yet can be a useful tool for duplicating shapes in unique ways (like in screenshots).

I can't believe it's free. Great job!
