2nd November 2017: we’ve released a new version — Makers Empire 3D 3.8.


New features:

– We’ve added our most requested feature – GROUPING! Add individual shapes into a group and rotate, scale, shear, mirror or copy them as if they were a single shape. This will save you a lot of painful design time!

Watch the grouping video:

New shape controls. Now the controls will show on whichever side of the shape you’re looking at, which simplifies them a lot and also allows a much greater range of shape customization. We think it’s a huge improvement!

– We’ve put a lot of work into our class login page, and it now looks much better and is simpler to use.

Reduced memory usage on older devices

Fixed a very rare case where you could lose your design data.

– Other minor bug fixes.
