How to remove FaceBuilder add-on from Blender?

You need to open the add-ons preferences pane, find FaceBuilder, click the "remove" button and relaunch Blender.

How to update FaceBuilder add-on (v2021.3 and earlier)?

To update the add-on you need to reinstall it. Before installing a new Core Library you need to restart Blender. The recommended process would look like this: remove the old add-on, restart Blender, install a new version of the add-on and then install the new Core Library. We'll address this hurdle in future releases!

I have installed it but cannot see it anywhere/it doesn't work

First, it's always good to review the installation instructions from our guide.
Anyway, if you have installed something and it doesn't work it's better to remove it first and relaunch Blender. Then please make sure you're installing the add-on zip file on the Blender add-ons page and then you're installing the KeenTools Core library on the installed FaceBuilder settings page.

Which files I need to download to install FaceBuilder for Blender?

If the machine where you're going to install FaceBuilder is connected to the Internet, you need to download the add-on file only, and install it using the 'Install...' button on the Add-on page of Blender preferences window, then you'd need to install the core library using 'Install Online' button on the FaceBuilder settings pane.
If that machine is not connected to the Internet, you need to download both, the add-on file and KeenTools Core library. Then you can install the downloaded core library using 'Install From Disk' button on the FaceBuilder settings pane.

What is KeenTools Core Library? Do I need to download it?

Due to Blender license limitations we have to ship our core library separately.
Luckily, our add-on is able to download the core library almost automatically, but if the machine where you want to install FaceBuilder for Blender is not connected to the Internet, then you need to download not only the add-on itself but also KeenTools Core.

Can I use FaceBuilder with Blender 2.79 or older?

Unfortunately, no. FaceBuilder works only with Blender 2.80 and newer.

Do I need a license for FaceBuilder for Blender?

You can use it without any restrictions and limitations for 15 days after the first launch. After that you'd need a license, which you can get on this page.

Is the KeenTools FaceBuilder open source? Where's the repository?

The add-on is an open source adapter for KeenTools Core Library, its Git repository can be found here.
