Blender F2 Addon Tutorial

The Blender F2 addon is a quite simple addon that extends the functionality of the F key in Blender. By default, the F key is a quite unintuitive tool to use. The F2 addon extends on its behavior by adding three functions.

  • First you only need to select one edge and hit F to add face to connecting edges
  • The second functionality is helping you control this behavior by letting you decide where to fill simply by positioning your mouse cursor.
  • The last function and my favorite one lets you create faces with a single vertex selected. The addon does this in a very predictable way in all its simplicity.

This tutorial is the first part in a series of short tutorial explaining simple tools in Blender for people who already know their way around in Blender but need that extra push to become more efficient in their modelling and with Blender. You can find the video tutorial below. I hope you find it useful and have fun with the Blender F2 addon!
