Method

Generates a procedural shape from a mesh object.

Example
Example Nodegraph

Attributes

Name Description
Distance Offset Offsets the distance field values, causing the generated distance field to expand of contract.
Filled Mode Thickness of the Shell wall, when Filled Mode is set to Shell.
Shell Thickness Thickness of the Shell wall, when Filled Mode is set to Shell.
SDF Width/ Height / Depth Resolution of the distance field.
Generate Colours Colours are generated for the procedural by sampling the first texture of the material assigned to the input object. This requires Affect Colour to be enabled and for the procedural renderer to support colour generation.
Generate UVs This feature is in development
Animate SDF When enabled, the procedural will be re-generated on every frame. Use if the source mesh is animating.
CSG Mode These options change how a this node combines with the rest of the procedural system. To find out more, see CSG Operation.
  • Replace, Replaces the previous procedural system.
  • Union, Adds the new procedural to the old procedural system.
  • Intersection, Interesects the new procedural with the old procedural.
  • Subtract, Subtracts the new procedural from the previous procedural system.
  • Blend, Blends between both procedurals – driven by the CSG Blend Weight.
  • Union Blend, A combination of Union and Blend – driven by the CSG Blend Weight.
  • Smooth Union, The new procedural is added to the old, and smoothing is applied to the outcome. Driven by the CSG Blend Weight.
  • Smooth Subtract, The new procedural is subtracted from the old, and smoothing is applied to the outcome. Driven by the CSG Blend Weight.
  • Offset, Adds one procedural ontop of the other another.
  • Custom Code, allows you to enter your own expression code.
CSG Blend Weight How much the new procedural blends with the old procedurals, depending on the CSG Blend Mode.
Affect Colour Affect the colour of the generated procedural system. only functions with “Generate Colours” enabled in some Procedural Render nodes.
Always Enabled (No Time Bars) When enabled, this node will run regardless of time bar enable/disable. Due to how Notch handles shader generation with procedurals, with this enabled the node runs more efficiently.
Material Colour Modify the colour for the procedural material.

Inputs

Name Description Typical Node Input
Object Node Mesh used for the generated procedural. 3D Object
Bounds Override Usually the mesh object’s bounding box will be used for generating the procedural, but it can be over-ridden here. Bounding Box
Transform Modifier Links all transform properties to the input node. Null
Target Node Always faces the x-axis towards the inputs anchor point. Null
Local Transform Override Override the transformation values of the node, relative to its parent. Null
