Houdini alternative, a procedural modeling toolkit based on blueprint

Hey guys, today I’m gonna show you a procedural modeling toolkit based on UE4 blueprint I’m working on. This plugin is an alternative to Houdini which means you could implement the whole modeling procedure in UE4 blueprint graph without Houdini or other modeling software.
To implement a modeling procedure is rather simple. Just creating a blueprint inherited from subclass of Actor in our plugin and override its Build function. In the function graph you can insert and connect different geometry operation nodes then finally return a geometry object.

Each steps in the procedure could be displayed individually

By using BP member variables you can parameterize the modeling procedure and diversify instances of your BP in the level.

Here is the logic behind the wall system. By using blueprint interface you could implement different types of walls and select them at runtime.

Outlines and other parameters could be shared between these wall types.
