    ProBuilder
    ProBuilder is a unique hybrid of 3D modeling and level design tools, optimized for building simple geometry but capable of detailed editing and UV unwrapping as needed. ProBuilder lets you quickly prototype structures, complex terrain features, vehicles, and weapons; or lets you make custom collision geometry, trigger zones, or navmeshes.

    The ProBuilder documentation contains not only pesky words and stuff, but also full demo videos for each and every function! Check it out here: procore3d.com/probuilder/docs

    ProGrids
    ProGrids gives you both a visual and functional grid, which snaps on all 3 axis. ProGrids enables speed and quality, making level construction incredibly fast, easy, and precise. It is especially handy for modular or tile-based environments, but you will find that it significantly speeds up workflow and increases quality for all types of work.

    PolyBrush
    Polybrush enables you to blend textures and colors, sculpt meshes directly in the Unity editor. Polybrush is in beta, and just got a new feature in its latest iteration, it now allows to scatter objects in the world with highly customizable brushes.

    It feels kinda weird posting other people's content.... I hope that I'm understanding your request correctly?

    ProBuilder edit mode bar is not showing up in Unity (v2019.3) Any ideas? Are there keyboard shortcuts?
    Thanks,

    Only able to create an object and move it around in the scene, so far.

    Hello, This is Mola,

    I have an important question about using pro builder in unity. I would greatly appreciate if you help me. My question is how can i add a vertex to a face of one shape when i am using pro builder? is there any way to add a vertex to a face by writing API code? (Assum that adding vertex will result in new faces in the first face)

    Best Regards,
    Mola
