(Mutable) Parametric Modelling

As someone who is interested in CAD use-cases (woodworking) I am wondering whether parametric modelling is supported yet.
Scenario is e.g. that I want to have a single parameter, which gets used by multiple objects (e.g. for width). And later on I may wish to modify said parameter.

If not, is it on any roadmap?
And would it make sense to integrate it into Node system?

It is being worked on currently, here is a thread you can follow for updates and discussions : https://blenderartists.org/t/everything-nodes/1116074/470
All reports and designs from the team are usually reported there by one person or another.

I am not using nodes, but I am working on an add-on that simplifies creating parametric assets. You can find more information here.


It depend what you want to achieve. Blender has a lot of possibilities out of the box - modifiers generate a type of parametric workflow, for example.

Sorcar is quite nice, or at least I really like it.

Here’s a video, it uses nodes and is pretty well featured.
