Bone Layer Manager (Blender)

Assign/Name/Edit bone layers and much more..... 

This project updates and extends the work of Alfonso Annarumma and Paolo Acampora on the 2.7x version of this addon.

Last 2.7x version:


The biggest addition to the addon with this release is a set of Rig UI creation tools which enable the user to assign bone layers as buttons on a live Rig UI panel. The finalised Rig UI configuration can be written to a standalone script which works independently of the addon.

Please consider leaving a small tip... a lot of work goes into this ;)

Feature List:

  • Bone layer naming system and UI in 3D view.
  • Bone layer tools : Select, Move, Lock, Swap, Protect & Group from interface.
  • Toggle Deform properties and visibility for easy debug.
  • Add/Edit Custom Properties.
  • Layout tools for buttons (Rig UI layers).
  • Export Rig UI to standalone script.

Setup Addon:

  • Download.
  • Choose install addon from file in Blender preferences
  • Enjoy.


Update Addon:

  • Remove old version in Blender preferences
  • Restart Blender
  • Repeat "Setup"
