Grid Scale Presets

by Artemy Belzer in Addons


Maximize your productivity by effortlessly swapping between user-definable grid scale presets using a simple hotkey, ensuring your workflow remains uninterrupted and smooth.

This plugin brings you the power to switch grid scaling with ease. Featuring a convenient dropdown menu in the 3D viewport header, you can instantly see and adjust your current grid scale. Plus, customize the menu by adding your own predefined grid scales in the preference's menu.



This powerful feature, inspired by game engines, allows users to seamlessly swap between different grids with a simple keymap.



The GIF above demonstrates grid-scale presets on a procedural interior generator.

Our plugin features a versatile dropdown menu where you can manually input grid scaling and choose from two columns of user-definable grid scale presets. With two categories—standard scales (.1, .5, 1, 10, 50, etc.) and scales in powers of two (.02, .04, .08, .16, .32, etc.)—you have precise control over your snapping increments.

Effortlessly navigate between different grid scales using default keymaps ('[' and ']'). Customize your experience further by binding keymaps to specific properties as needed.

By default, the grid-scale swapping functionality is applied across all workspaces, but you can easily toggle this feature off with the 'Per Workspace' button for more focused control.



For added convenience, export your plugin preferences into an '.ini' file for safekeeping or for editing grid scale presets outside Blender's preference UI.

Please note: the plugin does not include the meshes, generators, and scenes shown in the GIF images.
