I’d like to be able to have several copies of a “component”, but have the ability to control the visibility of nested objects at the instance level. So all the geometry stays identical and in sync according to the component definition, but each instance would have the ability to have different visibility states for the nested objects.
Of, course, this isn’t possible with components, but I think maybe an extension to could do this with a special type of group.
I model multi-family apartment buildings, and have several copies of each unit type throughout the building. But sometimes, the top floor will have a slightly different configuration, like a taller ceiling, or a different balcony, so I’m forced to make a unique copy of that unit for each variation. It would be great if I could manage the unit as a single “component”, but just toggle the visibility of the different variation objects as needed.
Does anyone know of an extension with this capability?
