Metaball fixes

Description

  • Dependency graph integration
  • Naming based design is weak

There are many issues with the current version of metaballs. If we won't fix them we may want to consider to deprecate/remove this in future releases.

Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) triaged this task as Normal priority.

We may want to consider replacing the metaballs with an OpenVDB level set based solution. In the sculpt branch there is a remesh modifier with voxel mode, which can perform filters and boolean operations in real time using OpenVDB. It is way more flexible than metaballs as it let you use any arbitrary shape. We can integrate this functionality into a modifier, directly into the mesh objects or wait to have a volume object with level set support
