Inserts For Kit Ops

by New Media Supply in Models

How to install the inserts: 

  • Download the .zip file called:  
  • Unpack the .zip file and you see four folders:  NMS_01, NMS_02, NMS_Cutters, NMS_Modifiers.
  • Copy (or Move) these folders in a folder where KIT OPS is installed named: Master. 
  • On Windows you will find this folder likely here;  
    C:\Users\[YourUsername]\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79\scripts\addons\kitops\Master   
  • Appdata is a hidden folder which you can turn on in the File Explorer in the menu under tab View > hidden items.   Restart Blender and navigate to the KIT OPS addon.  
  • Under KPACKS in KIT OPS in Blender you will see the inserts.  

Recommended workflow; 

  • Make a simple base mesh (could be a cube or a little bit flatter),
  • Add a bevel-modifier. Start with width: 0.015,  Segments 4 or 5,  Limit Method; Angle, Angle: 30 degrees.  
  • Shade Smooth (Z) and in Object Data tab in the Properties panel :  Autosmooth 
  • If you have a build with the Normal Weight Modifier, that does some magic sometimes.  
  • Right after using an insert (not yet applied), move the Boolean modifier before the bevel modifier.  (Bevel modifier is always last).   
  • All you have to do now is: place insert > move modifier > place insert > move modifier  etc.
