Yes, Bricker was designed to handle any mesh object you could throw at it, no matter how messy.
Some non-water tight meshes may cause problems with Bricker's high-efficiency calculations (selectively casting rays in the two most optimal axes, as opposed to all six), but there is a setting in the 'Advanced' tab to disable high-efficiency calculations.
Yes, Bricker works perfectly in Blender 2.8. You'll find it has a new home in the right-side tool panel in the 3D viewport!
NOTE: Blender 2.8 is still in Beta, and every day a new build is released which could introduce compatibility issues with Bricker. If you run into an issue, first make sure you are using the latest 2.8 build from blender.org. If the issue persists, be sure to report the issue in an email to [email protected] and we will address it right away.
If you're running Bricker v1.6.0 or later, you may be experiencing an issue with the background processor introduced in early Spring (2019). Try disabling the background processor in the Bricker addon preferences (Preferences > Bricker > Brickify in Background) and running the process again. The interface will freeze as the calculations are running in your active Blender session, but the brickified model should soon appear.
If you experience further issues or wish to troubleshoot your issue with the background processor, feel free to reach out via email ([email protected]) or private message from your inbox (https://blendermarket.com/inbox) and we'll get back to you before the end of the next business day.

The easiest way is to Log In to the BlenderMarket, go to your Account, then under the Orders tab you should see Bricker in the list, which should have a link on the right-hand side to download the newest version. If you are on a PC or Linux system, you can also update via the addon preferences for Bricker within Blender (Addon updater coming to Mac OS in Blender 2.8).
