Graswald comes with a selection of plant models from the Asset Library. Create amazing scenes with highly detailed, scientifically correct plant models, optimized for speed and performance with unbeatable variations of different grow types.
Graswald comes as a .zip file which you then can install in Blender.
Graswald ships with 473 of the 663 different beauftiful models from the Graswald Asset Library, so you'll get access to 20 different species of plants and debris to use in your 3D renders:
Dead Beech Leaves
Dead Maple Leaves
Dead Oak Leaves
Installing Graswald works just like installing any other Blender add-on. Simply download the .zip file. Then paste it somewhere on your computer. Do not unzip it. Next, open blender and go to the user preferences under Edit/Preferences. Go to the Add-on section and click on install. Then, select the zip file and click on Install Add-on from File. Make sure to mark the little checkbox. If it gives you an error message, close and re-open Blender, and try again. It should be working now. You can find the Graswald menu in the properties panel on the right side of your 3D Viewport. Hit n on your keyboard to make it appear/hide.

Graswald and Graswald Pro are add-ons for the 3D Open Source Creation Suite Blender. They allow you to import nature assets into Blender and scatter, customize and render them without having to set up additional particle systems, modifiers or materials. The Asset Library is designed for non-Blender users who do not benefit from a Blender integration. It features all the models (as .fbx files) and textures (as .png files) that come with Graswald Pro. This allows everyone to import these models in any 3D software, set up plant materials with the according textures and use them in their work. For a more specific comparison between Graswald and Graswald Pro,
If you bought Graswald before the 3rd of March 2020, you automatically got upgraded to Graswald Pro. Congrats!
No, there are a extra few plants, that only ship with Graswald Pro or the Asset Library. These are Perennial Ryegrass, Wall Barley, Autumn Hawkbit, Common Daisy, Maple Saplings, Chery Laurel leaves, other various leaves and one species of moss. To find out more about the differences between Graswald and Graswald Pro,
Yes. Graswald and Graswald Pro have been created with a Blender integration at its core, so you can use them right away. While Graswald and Graswald Pro normally should work in newer Blender versions as well, there might be bugs that won't be fixed until these versions of Blender are officially released as we can't provide support for an ever changing software.
No. This pro feature needs the Package Creator that only ships with Graswald Pro. But both Graswald and Graswald Pro come with a Package Manager that allows you to install or load in other (usermade) packages yourself without having to reinstall everything outside of Graswald.
Absolutely. When a bunch of new assets are released, they might be sold separately as a package, but updates and single species added to Graswald will always be free.
We sell Graswald via Gumroad. If you bought it on our website, you can log into gumroad.com and can then find Graswald under https://gumroad.com/library. Here you can always download the newest version. If you bought Graswald via the Blender Market, you should see it on your account there.

You cannot test Graswald, but we have created a free version of the add-on with two plant species.

Control the percentage of populated space relatively to its size with the density slider to get consistent density between emitter objects of different sizes. The number of models even adjusts when changing the size so that the density stays the same.
With Graswald Pro, you get the same density settings. But with the plants per square meter option, you can also change the size of assets without changing the density. For more control and optimization for larger scenes, you can also make full use of the integrated children options to clump plants together or add more randomization. And with advanced orientation settings, you can make plants follow the sun (or any other light source). Plus,you can change the random size or let your plants only grow on individual vertices or inside an object by changing the source options.
In Graswald, you can simulate the seasons by customizing the look of the plant materials. Using different sliders, you can alter the age of your plants, making it possible to have young fresh leaves for a lovely spring atmosphere or old, broken, yellow leaves to nail those winter scenes. Plus, you can customize the dryness of your grass, add color variation and even create dead grass patches with easy to use sliders.
The same season options but we added more masking options for even more control. Adjust the intensity and age effect of your individual leaves with two additional sliders. Alter the colors with simple but effective controls to fit your needs. Take more control over your translucency to better match reference images. Even adjust the specularity and roughness right in the materials tab for your inner perfectionist. And use the Pass Index option to get easy masks for compositing your final images.
Add believable wind effects with a few clicks for animation. Change the speed, strength, noise and much more right in the Graswald menu. Together with Blender's internal force fields, you can magically breathe life into your scenes. You can even reuse and modify existing turbulence simulations for greater speed and consistency. And when combined with the hair simulation options, you'll get realistic wind in minutes.
In Graswald, assets are installed as packages. Graswald comes with its own four packages. The Package Manager allows you to install or load in other packages as well. That way, you can for example easily integrate new Graswald packages into Blender without having to reinstall everything from scratch.
Pro users use more than one asset library. That's why we included the Package Creator with Graswald Pro. This allows you to easily set up your own packages to use your assets within Graswald. And with the Package Manager included, you can load and install any packages you want.
Graswald's easy to use and simple to understand user interface lets you do the work you need to do - even if you're just getting started with Blender. That means you can focus on your artwork without having to worry about learning new software.
Graswald Pro's user interface is designed to keep all the different settings that Pro user need well-structured and organized. With multiple panels and bonus operators to expand, you can work in a clean environment without lacking the settings you need to do your work. And thanks to an interface tailored for Blender 2.8, it will look consistent in every situation.
