Patchwork 3D Enterprise 2021.1 X5

Edit Primitive

It is possible to edit the dimension of primitive by interactively modifying its parameters, either in Shaper or in Matter.

There are two choices for editing a primitive:

  • When creating a primitive in Shaper from the menu by choosing Model > Create Primitive. With the Primitive editor that opens you can set the parameters for the selected primitive type. See the parameters above.

  • After creating a primitive, in Shaper and Matter you can also change the dimensions of the selected primitive by right-clicking on it and choosing Edit Primitive.


Changing the dimensions of a primitive is only available with primitives that have been created in Patchwork 3D versions 2020.1 and higher. Primitives created in earlier versions are not editable.
