Commonly Ignored Feature #16: Randomize Transform

Ever wanted to randomly position a bunch of objects? Of course you have, and like me, you probably resorted to using Proportional Edit’s random falloff. Such cavemen we are. Or maybe it’s just me.

Turns out, there’s a function just for this, and it’s been around for years.

What does it do? Yep, you guessed it! It randomizes the transforms!

When you click it, it may seem like it doesn’t do anything. This is simply because the default settings are all on 0, so you just need to press F6 to show all the options.

  • I’ve been using Blender over 3 years and didn’t suspected about this brilliant feature.
    Thanks!

  • i noticed this today as well. I did know about the other random operator. What i dont understand is that this one is available in edit mode but nothing happens???
