NormalEditModifier(Modifier)

base classes — bpy_struct, Modifier

class bpy.types.NormalEditModifier.NormalEditModifier(Modifier)

Modifier affecting/generating custom normals

invert_vertex_group

Invert vertex group influence

Type

boolean, default False

mix_factor

How much of generated normals to mix with exiting ones

Type

float in [0, 1], default 1.0

mix_limit

Maximum angle between old and new normals

Type

float in [0, 3.14159], default 1.0

mix_mode

How to mix generated normals with existing ones

  • COPY Copy, Copy new normals (overwrite existing).

  • ADD Add, Copy sum of new and old normals.

  • SUB Subtract, Copy new normals minus old normals.

  • MUL Multiply, Copy product of old and new normals (*not* cross product).

Type

enum in [‘COPY’, ‘ADD’, ‘SUB’, ‘MUL’], default ‘COPY’

mode

How to affect (generate) normals

  • RADIAL Radial, From an ellipsoid (shape defined by the boundbox’s dimensions, target is optional).

  • DIRECTIONAL Directional, Normals ‘track’ (point to) the target object.

Type

enum in [‘RADIAL’, ‘DIRECTIONAL’], default ‘RADIAL’

no_polynors_fix

Do not flip polygons when their normals are not consistent with their newly computed custom vertex normals

Type

boolean, default False

offset

Offset from object’s center

Type

float array of 3 items in [-inf, inf], default (0.0, 0.0, 0.0)

target

Target object used to affect normals

Type

Object

use_direction_parallel

Use same direction for all normals, from origin to target’s center (Directional mode only)

Type

boolean, default True

vertex_group

Vertex group name for selecting/weighting the affected areas

Type

string, default “”, (never None)
