Good examples of UI patterns for data building?

8 months ago from

I'm particularly interested in Node based UIs (Octane Render, Blender, etc...) and I have a few questions:

  1. What are good and elegant services in your opinion that use these pattern to create complex outputs? (I really like how https://lobe.ai/ manages to use this UI pattern in a very effective and elegant way).

  2. Are there other alternative UI patterns that work well with data assembling like Nodes and Networks? (I'm thinking something like https://roli.com/products/blocks ).

  3. Where can I find a list of UI patterns used in desktop software GUIs and services where the user has to assemble or build something. (Here I'm thinking to 3d softwares or Layer based UI of Photoshop).

Thank you
