Metaspace - 3D Sketchbook 4+

Draw in 3D, explore in AR

Designed for iPad

    • Free
    • Offers In-App Purchases



A powerful sketchbook made with technology of the 21st century.

Metaspace gives you the ability to draw in three dimensions, on an infinitely expanding canvas. There are no limits to your creativity.
Complete support for the Apple Pencil, however drawing with fingers is just as rewarding!
Draw with photorealistic pressure/tilt sensitive pencils, pens and markers.

Use it to:
- Quickly draw out some ideas for a 3D concept
- Take complex mind-mapping notes
- Explore your creative side and develop your ability to draw in 3D
- Draw on top of 3D scans and other imported 3D files (.usdz only)
- Create animated walkthroughs through drawings and models

Metaspace uses touch camera controls, meaning that you use familiar multi-touch gestures to move around in the space, whilst using very little battery power. You may also turn on AR mode for something more exciting, where Metaspace will detect the world around you with the back camera, and you will find yourself walking inside of your drawing. AR is available from the Explore mode, not the editor.

Built with:
- ARKit
- SceneKit
- PencilKit
- Metal

- Full Apple Pencil support on iPad
- Now available on Apple Silicon Mac
- Complete landscape/horizontal orientation support, including split screen (on iPad and Mac)
- Import USDZ files into Metaspace, with full support for materials and animations
- import images from your Photos library

This app is completely free to use. You may draw and create as many 3D drawings as you like. If you really like Metaspace (as much as we do), you are welcome to support us via a one-time in-app purchase. The in-app purchase unlocks the ability to be able to edit your previously saved 3D drawings.

Stay creative.

Solid Start

I like the vision and it works as-expected for me. I didn’t run into errors with offset. For me personally though I won’t use it more (or in a production environment) until I can generate some sort of animation, movie, stepped visual or export as obj with mtl, fbx or gltf. Works well in the app just need to get more out of it to share and plug into a pipeline.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review! Stay tuned for the next version, currently in progress - I hear you loud and clear!

Highly off cursor at times!

At times the cursor will be away off! I can put my finger on one side of the screen, and it’d show up on the other! Im sure it’s not my phone cause I’ve used other apps fine.

Developer Response ,

Hey, I am happy you are enjoying the app. If you are able to reproduce this error, could you please send instructions/screen recording to ? thank you!

Could be great

The camera is too hard to work with it's very frustrating. It’s not that the camera doesn't move, it’s the fact that it’s so difficult to get the right angle and it gets cloudy and hard to see. And even when the camera and depth doesn't move, it changes the depth of what I'm drawing.

Developer Response ,

Hey, the camera does move. Whilst in the camera view, move the camera with one finger, rotate/tilt/zoom with two fingers.

The slider is just for depth of field. I will make this more clear for you in an update.
