    • 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.
