Patternodes 3 released


The third generation of the macOS parametric design application Patternodes has now been released. Click below for more information, or download and try it out for free now!

  • Improved drag editing. Improved support for selecting and editing node parameters by clicking and dragging in the preview.
  • Redesigned interface. Cleaned up modern interface style with support for dark/light mode and animations.
  • Improved performance. Rebuilt core components for faster generation and a more responsive interface.
  • Redesigned dynamic index features. Clarified system for generating dynamic input to nodes.
