Hard Gun Project is aimed to make the same tools like in Blender BoxCutter/HardOps. Houdini is a new game player in hard surface modeling world.



Here are the links you can familiarize with the BoxCutter/HardOps:
https://masterxeon1001.com/category/boxcutter/ [masterxeon1001.com]
https://masterxeon1001.com/hard-ops-intro-guide/ [masterxeon1001.com]

Download Hard Gun ToolShelves (Sop and Obj):
https://github.com/mifth/mifthtools/tree/master/houdini/toolbar/HardGun [github.com]

Features:
- No need additional assets. Houdini already has everything.
- Fast Primitives creation.
- Fast Booleans setup.
- Other additional tools which help in modeling, UVs and Substance Painter preparations.

Some tests/tuts will be here:

Hi Pavel

This addon looks great. After downloading the shelves how do I install them?

In Windows my path to the shelves folder is “C:\Users\mifth\Documents\houdini17.0\toolbar”.
Just google “houdini install shelf”.

I'll be glad to get your feedback about the tools.

Thanks Pavel. Unfortunately, in spite of reading everything I can find on installing shelf files I still can't figure it out. I guess I don't understand enough about Houdini's operation to do something like this. Maybe one day…

Cheers
