Cubify Invent - Tutorial 15: Feature or Bug? Extend, Move and Rotate Explored

No software program is perfect.  And, this is especially true of the introductory version.

Cubify Invent is remarkably bug free.  But, it does have some behaviors that might have to be addressed in future versions.

Using EXTEND, MOVE, ROTATE we explore some behaviors that are a bit puzzling or surprising.  We make an attempt to determine if these behaviors constitute a purposeful feature or a potential bug.

So far, there are no "Show Stoppers" that we've identified.  In fact, almost all of the questionable behaviors that we have seen have relatively minor impact on our ability to design.


  1. As always, good job. My behaviour is slightly different so I suspect my download (done on April 12, 2013) may be a different version than the 1.0 version you mentioned you had. But I can't find the version! How did you determine the version of Invent you are using?

  2. I had never tried looking before. But, I can't find that information either! You've started a QUEST! LOL!

  3. Hi,

    I was also puzzling with this. Luckily, i'm not the only one ;-). You get more confussing bugs when you copy a shape and rotate or move the copy.

    Hopefully, the developers of Cubufy will fix this.

  4. horizontal and vertical constraints are present. You must remove this constraints to rotate the rectangle freely.

  5. Thank you for filling us in! That's great. :)
