Garlandery (Addon) | Quick hanging garlands | Connect objects and vertices

Garlandery is simply an addon to connect several objects or their selected vertices via curves, garlands, to each other. You can quickly draw garlands between multiple objects, connect / parent them, and don't have to bother when moving objects around... the garlands will be kept in place.

Garlandery comes with a bunch of geometry nodes modifiers, with a huge stock of adjustability, all packed comfortably in an addon as a side-panel for quick access and combination variaty. Because of making use of geometry nodes the properties of the applied tools can be adapted and quickly be changed afterwards in a non-destructive way.

For Garlandery creates curve objects as garlands, you are able to use every geometry nodes modifier which works with and modifies a curve. Garlandery is so not limited to it's modifier tools, which comes with this addon. The garlands and their handling will be kept. Feel free and let your creativity flow.
