Blender add-on: EEVEE Materials Override

Blender 3D add-on for quick and easy materials overrides in the EEVEE render engine.

“EEVEE Materials Override” add-on allows you to quickly assign the single material to all objects in the scene, for example, for clay renders, wireframe renders, or the UV-grid demonstration just with a single button click.

Add-on functionality

You can easily override all materials in the scene.

You can use two built-in templates:


and the “UV Grid”.

You can also assign your custom material to all scene objects.

Overriding materials can be disabled or enabled at any time.

Some materials can be excluded from override. To do this, check the “excluded” checkbox next to the material name in the list of materials in the add-on panel.

The add-on is for the “EEVEE” render engine, but also works with the “Cycles” render engine.

Hi, thank you for a great script. By the way, is this a bug? I added your script, but nothing appears on the menu. I am using Blender 2.93.9

Do you have any messages in the system console (main menu – window – toggle system console) when enabling the add-on?
