A simple blender addon for quick placement of armature bones on objects surfaces.

Shift+Click : start a new chain
Right Click / Backspace : remove last point

Enter : Valid
For regular objects, built-in blender snapping modes are already excellent to place bone on surfaces. The tool is only here to get a quicker initial "sketch" of the rig.
For grease pencil objects it's usefull since there are no built-in tools to snap bones on the canvas (the chosen drawing plane).
I originally developed it to quickly rig a tesselated texture plane.
You can see a demo in this video from 5:26 to 7:42
Have a nice Blend,
