Make your own menus for a faster workflow and more customized Blender.

There are so many different tools, menus, and options in Blender that it is impossible to perfectly fit everyone's ideal workflow. Some people like big menus, some people prefer hotkeys, and others still want only iconized toolbars. Blender will never be exactly like we each want it, but luckily this is where Python comes in!

Blender's Python integration allows us to create our own menus, toolbar panels, and other things by writing simple scripts. We can then install these scripts as add-ons and adapt our workflow how we choose.

In this tutorial you'll learn how to write a simple add-on that creates a custom menu. After writing the script you'll be able to easily customize the menu by filling it with almost anything you like.

You can find the final code, along with all our other scripts on the CG Cookie Github Repository: https://github.com/CGCookie/script-bakery
