UTM geometric design decisions

I’ve been working on a line of tools for the UTM and was curious of the benefits of a cylindrical UTM verses a cubic version?

The UTM was designed by @roryaronson, so he will be better equipped to answer your question.

I would love to hear more about your tools, though. The UTM was designed for third-party addons and we really do like seeing folks adding new capabilities to the platform.

@Sjamesparsons the choice for the UTM and tools to be cylindrical was mostly an aesthetic choice :sweat_smile: Though you could also make the argument that the cylindrical design is also less likely to catch on plant foliage than a cubic design, though that benefit is probably minimal.
