Modifiers

Modifiers are tools that change a mesh in a non-destructive way and that can be adjusted interactively. Other objects may have modifiers as well: Text3d, Metaballs, and Curves for example. These objects may be represented as meshes so they can be modified as well. Not all modifiers can be associated with these objects though. If desired, the effects of modifiers can be made permanent by applying them. Blender provides a whole host of modifiers ranging from subsurface modifiers to all sorts of deformation modifiers. The table shows the list of available modifiers:
