Now that KIT OPS FREE can create basic inserts, what is the difference between it and KIT OPS PRO?
This is a question many of you may be asking. There are still substantial differences between the two products. Here is a list describing them as of KIT OPS: Chuck Norris edition.
Differences between PRO and FREE
PRO has snapping features, FREE does not. These are valuable especially when using KIT OPS PRO to create objects.
PRO has the ability to create INSERTS which have built-in Boolean union and difference modifiers, which can be linked with the target object and/or the INSERT itself. This allows you to create INSERTS that can cut holes in other objects. FREE cannot do this.
PRO allows for wire object types which are good for both positioning and creating objects location points.
If you want to use KIT OPS SYNTH, and create INSERTS for it, you’ll need to use PRO.
PRO has the favorite menu system allowing you shortcuts to KPACKS
PRO has Factory mode allowing you to fully edit INSERTS and create thumbnails with custom settings.
KIT OPS BATCH only works with PRO
PRO works with KIT OPS PARALLAX to create parallax INSERTS with proper thumbnails.
PRO has the ability to easily create and edit materials.
Since KIT OPS 2 came out a year ago there have been 7 major updates, 2 of them FREE updates and all of them with PRO improvements.
As evidenced by our many and frequent feature updates over the past year, we have many big plans in store for PRO.

KIT OPS 2 PRO
For Blender 2.83+
NEW VERSION 2
NOTICE: Please update to latest version if you plan on using SYNTH.
Just updated to make workflows even easier!
This massive effort now makes it easier than ever to create, store and apply your own INSERTS including materials. Check out the videos below:
KIT OPS, with over 25,000 downloads, is the preeminent kitbashing addon for Blender. It allows you to quickly create and kitbash your hard surface models– And it also fulfills many of your asset management needs including the ability to quickly store and apply materials.
KIT OPS 2 PRO is a Blender addon and works with Blender 2.83+. It uses the systematized application of Blender files called KIT OPS INSERTS, to instantly cut and add to existing objects or create standalone objects with the goal of rapidly creating and exploring new designs.
When used properly, KIT OPS can create objects and scenes with extreme efficiency and speed. Doors and windows can be inserted and cut through walls. Complex industrial designs can be generated in a single sitting. KIT OPS uses the power of the Blender Modifiers to accomplish all of this.
So, what are the new features? Well, we’ve completely reworked the authoring workflow for PRO users. You can now create INSERTS directly in your blend file as you work. And you can edit them as well.
