Sketch N' Cage is a Mesh Deform and Shape Animation tool, utilizing Blender's Grease Pencil to create the "Cage" object (the same way as it's sister product Sketch N' Carve).

It converts the user's sketch into a "Cage Deform" object and automatically creates Shape keys ready to be animated.

Unlike a Lattice Sketch N' Cage can use any arbitrary shape as a deformer.

Unlike a Lattice Cage objects bind with the target objects 1:1, making it ideal for rigging!

Sketch N' Cage  works with all versions of Blender from 2.90 to the latest release.

Free lifetime updates!

Current Version: 1.0.4b
