Script name: slope2vgroup
Author(s): Michel Anders (varkenvarken)
Addon to convert slope (angle between vertex normal and object space z-axis) to vertex weights. Its purpose is to facilitate distributing particles preferentially to relatively flat parts of a mesh.
- select object (inobject mode)
- click 3dview -> object -> slope2vgroup
it will replace the vertex weights of the active vertex group or create a vertex group if none is present yet.
Then add particle system as you normally would and select the vertexgroup in the density field
