Blender Exploder Tool v1.35

You can also get this product over at and support the Blender Development Fund!

A very handy and customizable tool for Blender that allows you explode all the meshes inside a Collection in a very visually appealing way. Basically, you can animate thousands of objects with just 1 slider! Or go deeper for more personalized control. Take a look at the example below, where only 4 parameters have been animated, but LOTS of geometry moves. This tool gives the best looking result when used with complex meshes with hundreds or even thousands of parts.


A Blender project file that you can append or store as asset in your asset browser.

  • Geometry nodes project made with Blender 3.6 LTS
  • Use the explode slider to move the position of all your objects
  • Add your own objects to 1 of the 6 Collection layers
  • Use 1 slider to explode all objects and create an exploded view of your meshes
  • Uses clever math/logic to animate based on position of objects
  • Swap out your models in the Collection layers, but keep the same animation intact
  • Lots of highly customizable settings in the Modifier window, to make it your own (explode all objects, rotate, multiply the effect, material override, 6 layers with lots of control, position offset and more)
  • For quickest result, put everything in 1 layer, but if you want more control, split your meshes between 6 Collections
  • Rotate all objects as one, or rotate every mesh in your scene around their own axis (locally)
  • 6 layers with their own controls – explode, multiply effect, position offset, checkboxes for exploding in X, Y or Z axis
  • Explodes 3D models, and explodes their individual faces/polygons too!
  • Includes optional camera-based backface culling + random face deletion to save render time
  • Scales and rotates individual faces/polygons as well, with their own separate sliders
  • Swap between Collections (Layers) easily in the Modifier tab
  • Future updates of version 1.x are FREE for all purchasers
  • New in v1.1 – material overrides for all 6 layers + master material override + explode individual faces/polygons!
  • New in v1.2 – Random face deletion by probability with random seed
  • New in v1.21 – Kill geometry inside or outside a (custom) volume
  • New in v1.3 – Explode XYZ, Add to position XYZ and Scale XYZ for all 6 Layers

Geometry Nodes

This tool has been made with Geometry Nodes and features a couple of custom made nodes to make it work. It allows you to quickly animate hundreds if not thousands of meshes with just a single slider – but for the nerds out there that want to go deeper; there are a lot of tweakable options to really customize the effect and make it your own! If you want quick results, put all your objects into 1 of the Collections and use the Explode slider on the X, Y or Z axis (or all 3 if you want to get really crazy). However, there are 6 Collections that work like layers. You put the objects you want to animate at the same time into the same collection. Say you have a very complex 3D model of a smartphone with hundreds of small components as meshes. You could put the outer casing and the glass of the smartphone in 1 layer, and put the insides and other technical components in layer 2. This way you can animate them separately – with just 2 sliders! But the visual effect looks quite complex, even though the number of keyframes can be really low.

No knowledge of Geometry Nodes required

This tool has a lot of settings in the Modifier window – the whole point is ease of use, but give lots of customizability options when required. If you know nothing about Geometry Nodes, don’t worry – everything is controlled from the Modifier tab. This way you can start creating beautiful exploded views quickly without being bogged down by nodes. Just move a couple of sliders and watch the magic happen! Take a look at everything you can control right from the Modifier tab below;

How to use

Append the project file by pressing File > Append in Blender. Then select all the Collections in the project file and Append. Then put all your meshes in one of the 6 layers (Collections), or split a number of them between layers. Also, if all your objects have a Location of X=0 Y=0 Z=0 it will not work, so make sure you select all meshes and press Object > Set Origin > Origin to geometry if that is the case.
