Shaper 2D

Get it on the Asset Store

Shaper2D is an editor extension for Unity3D that will allow you to create a number of different shapes you may need in your project and modify them in inspector or through your code. Simply add Shaper 2D to your scene and use the sliders in inspector panel to change the mesh to desired shape: circle, star, polygon, sector or an arc.

This trailer showcases all shapes that can be created with this extension:


How to use

To start using it, just click Game Object > 2D Object > Shaper 2D in Unity's main menu. Or do the same by right-clicking the Hierarchy panel. This will add a new Shaper 2D object to your scene. If you select this object, in inspector you'll see the panel where you can control the appearence of it (on the right). The extension works by generating a 2D mesh. By setting Sector count you can control the level of detail for this mesh, adding or removing angles to the mesh. Sorting layer and Order in layer properties work exactly as they would for sprites.

Every pproperty can be modified at runtime with a script. There is a demo scene included with this asset that shows how to animate properties with coroutines in C#.

These dynamic meshes use Unity's default sprite material which basically makes them behave in the same was as sprites. This also optimizes the rendering and renders all Shaper 2D objects in a single draw call.
