Generative Modeling Toolkit for Blender 2.8

BY-GEN is a free and open-source add-on designed to simplify the process of creating non-destructive, generative modeling styles in Blender 2.8.

It makes heavy use of the modifier stack to provide various forms of mesh-manipulation to let you achieve a variety of geometric effects. Through the use of a simple interface, you can either generate new objects from scratch or apply styles to pre-existing objects.
