What’s New

Version 4.10.1

You asked, we made sure to listen! We’re dishing up section views for 2D drawings. Download the latest app version to slice up 3D models and explore the hidden details and surfaces inside.
On top of that, here’s a cocktail of updates for you:
• New: You can now sketch and use guided curves to customize the surfaces of your lofted bodies.
• New: We smartened up guide points, so you can see and snap to points that lie on a sketch plane.
• New: You can now hide each sketching and modeling tool’s instructions that appear on screen. Just select the arrow to hide or show them.
• New: We revamped the Help menu. You can find links to announcements for past releases, check your progress with tutorials, quick-access helpful tips in the Manual, etc.
• Fixed: During a routine check, we found some unruly bugs so we came down hard on them. Using the Shell, Project, Scale, and other transformation tools is painless now. And, we tidied up the inner workings of SpaceMouse navigation and the 2D drawings’ geometries feature.

Editors’ Choice

It's not often we stumble across an app that has the potential to dramatically transform your workflow. But with Shapr3D, there's no need for a desk, a mouse, or a keyboard. With your iPad and Apple Pencil, you can design complex 3D models. The ability to work offline means you'll be able to sketch and design from anywhere.

Stumbled across this application and after reading the description it hinted at a similarity to a highly expensive parametric design software for pc known as Solid Works. That caught my interest because that was a software I fell in love with while in school for mechanical design. So that alone made me download and try the app. I tried the free version which is fully functional when it comes to design but limits certain features and number of designs that can be created. After a few versions of a design which I completed. I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for the monthly full version. So far I am glad I did you gain extra features to not only save your designed without limited number but also adjust colors to make designs look and feel more real to get a better idea of the vision of the product you are considering constructing. This app is intuitive but I have extensive Solid-works and AutoCad exposure and that helped tremendously with designing on this because this program is a slight mixture of both applications and tooling works similar to a blend of each of those two programs. Apple Pencil is a necessity for this because it acts as a mouse/courser and is very precise.

Best 3D design app, Worst subscription options

This is by far one of the best apps I have ever used for 3D modeling. I have been learning with fusion 360 for awhile now and I find this to be so much quicker and easier to use. Using fingers to move and the Apple Pencil to work makes it very easy to move when you want to move and draw when you draw and not have one mixed with the other.

It does have one flaw though, the price. First off, the free version only lets you save 2 designs, but all tutorial and even example designs count as your saved designs, that means if you want to use the free version you have to delete any tutorials or examples. If you actually want to use it you have to get the subscription. Which would be fine, honestly with all the crafted tutorials that do such a great job showing you how to use the app I think it deserves it, but not for the $300 they are asking for. I would happily pay $10 or around that ball park a month for a medium tier, and it surprises me they don’t since the questionnaire you fill in at the beginning asks if you are using it for a hobby or if you never 3D modeled before. If its only geared to professionals and you don’t want hobbiests using it then why even asking they are one? I am not even asking for you to make all the features free like fusion 360 does, just a lower cost for non-profesionals if you really do want hobbiests and non-pros using it as well
