BIS add-on for Blender 2.8

BIS (Blender Interplanety Storage) add-on is ported to Blender 2.8

The add-on branch for Blender 2.7 is fixed on the number 1.5. The master release for Blender 2.8 has the version number 1.6 and higher in future development.

For both add-on versions the same library is used, so all BIS materials are available for all add-on versions, however, please note, materials made for Blender 2.8 may not look correct in Blender 2.7 and backward.

  • bis_2_7.zip – for Blender 2.7
  • BIS.zip – for Blender 2.8
