Components (object instances)

Everything in a uMake design is a one-off that exists in isolation.

I work mostly with furniture, but many types of models benefit from what Sketchup calls “components”—a logical grouping of objects that are typically repeated throughout a design. Edit a component and all instances of that component change.

So far I really like the idea of going from actual sketches (freehand) to a full-blown 3D model in uMake—there’s really no single software tool poised to support this design lifecycle as elegantly. Details are added and repeat across a design as it gets more sophisticated, and an easy and efficient way to refine these more detailed design elements would be great.

If there’s already a way to do this I’d love to know.

@Nryn,

Yes, this is a big one that we’re looking into. Definitely on the roadmap. We will have to support group editing first, and then we will be able to support this type of feature.

Thanks,
Evi
