Enable QR Code add-on

Instructions

Create a QR Code

  • Script must be activated (read above).
  • Add (Shift/a) > Mesh > Qr code.
  • A primitive appears on the workspace.
  • Change the Content in Parameters.
  • Optionally change other parameters.
  • Click Construct to rebuild.

Parameters

Mesh

Notes

  • Modules (QR Code blocks) should be dark while background should be light in order to make QR Code readable. Also QR Code should be viewed from top with allowed minimum rotation or projection.
  • Requires internet connection to generate QR Code matrix, few kilobytes of data.
  • Useful for playing with blocks, e.g. experimenting with physics, simulations, block explosions...

Compatibility

Tested on Windows 7, Blender 2.57.1 and 2.63a, Python 3.2 (bundled), all 64-bit.

May also work with Blender versions < 2.57 but not tested.

Troubleshooting

Add-on does not appear on the list.

Check if the .py file is copied to the proper directory. Also check if you are using a supported version of Blender (2.57 or later).

Add-on cannot be activated.

Check the python console (inside Blender) for any message. Please report the error to the bug tracker.

Changing the parameters does not update QR Code mesh.

Click the Construct checkbox to re-generate mesh.
