The Simple Lattice Addon is another addon that creates a lattice after selecting an object or vertices. While the Fast Lattice Addon creates an entry in the N-Panel, this addon doesn’t. Here an attempt to find other differences.
It’s pretty simple. You can select an object and activate the add-on by going to Object (menu-bar in the 3D viewport) and click Create Lattice (at the bottom). An operator pops up, and there you have several options.
You can also go in Edit mode, select some faces. Then in the menu bar, go to Mesh > Create Lattice.
As I mentioned before, I never bothered that much using lattice before because that was such a hassle. I thought “Oh, I just sculpt it, or go in Edit mode”. But now, with these add-ons it a matter of a click or two to setup a lattice, I found out interesting things. For example did you know that you can add modifiers to a lattice? This means the object has a modifier which is a lattice, and then the lattice itself has also a modifier. Here the modifiers compatible with a lattice again:
Interesting is to give the lattice a Soft-body modifier. Or Hooks for example. Let me know in the comments if you come to interesting ideas.
You can download the Simple lattice addon on Github. Installation goes as usuall. Click the green button on the right, download .zip. In Blender go to Edit > Preferences > Addons > Install. Browse to the .zip file, press install. Enable the addon.
