    • ARRAY Array, Create copies of the shape with offsets.
    • BEVEL Bevel, Generate sloped corners by adding geometry to the mesh’s edges or vertices.
    • BOOLEAN Boolean, Use another shape to cut, combine or perform a difference operation.
    • BUILD Build, Cause the faces of the mesh object to appear or disappear one after the other over time.

    • LATTICE Lattice, Deform using the shape of a lattice object.
    • MESH_DEFORM Mesh Deform, Deform using a different mesh, which acts as a deformation cage.
    • SHRINKWRAP Shrinkwrap, Project the shape onto another object.
    • SIMPLE_DEFORM Simple Deform, Deform the shape by twisting, bending, tapering or stretching.
    • SMOOTH Smooth, Smooth the mesh by flattening the angles between adjacent faces.
    • CORRECTIVE_SMOOTH Smooth Corrective, Smooth the mesh while still preserving the volume.
    • LAPLACIANSMOOTH Smooth Laplacian, Reduce the noise on a mesh surface with minimal changes to its shape.

    • WARP Warp, Warp parts of a mesh to a new location in a very flexible way thanks to 2 specified objects.
    • WAVE Wave, Adds a ripple-like motion to an object’s geometry.
    • CLOTH Cloth.
    • COLLISION Collision.
    • DYNAMIC_PAINT Dynamic Paint.
    • EXPLODE Explode, Break apart the mesh faces and let them follow particles.
    • OCEAN Ocean, Generate a moving ocean surface.
    • PARTICLE_INSTANCE Particle Instance.
    • PARTICLE_SYSTEM Particle System, Spawn particles from the shape.
    • FLUID Fluid Simulation.
    • SOFT_BODY Soft Body.
    • SURFACE Surface.
