There are a few last steps needed to package up an add-on using Python in Blender.
- [Instructor] Now let's complete our add-on,…by finishing up the panel code.…Closing this window.…Then moving up to where we templated out the panel class.…And we're gonna then maximize my screen…using Control+Up.…Then, un-comment this line.…As usual, the input to our panel…will be (bpy.types.panel), followed by a colon.…And then as by convention, using triple quotes,…we'll describe what this class is.…The smooth monkey add panel""".…And then, we're gonna give it…the bl_label = "Smooth Monkey".…
Note again, that I do not include the name panel…inside of the label, because that would be redundant.…Then we have the bl_idname = .…Here we're gonna use the more common convention…similar to the operator, where we use…OBJECT_PT for panel,…and then smooth_monkey", end quotation.…Then we'll use the bl_space_type = "VIEW_3D"…for the 3D window.…Followed by the bl_region_type = "TOOLS"…for the tool window.…
And then we're gonna use the bl_category = "Create" tab.…Note that this is not in all caps,…but matches the name of the tab in the user interface.…
