Sketch, Doodle and Design to Scale
Use Archisketch as you would a tracing pad. Sketch. Draw to
scale. Layer over your sketch to further develop your ideas.
Erase. Add symbols, colour, text and dimension lines. Import
images or plans to set the scale. Zoom in without loss of
quality. Rotate a shape, a layer, or the entire drawing to try
Visualize your ideas in 3D and see them in context. Use smart
one- and two-point perspectives, and adjust your perspective
grid and view point. Align your perspective to an image, and
your lines automatically snap to the vanishing point. Print your
drawings to scale up to A1 size, or export sketches to use in a
CAD application or Adobe Creative Cloud.

Ratings and Reviews
Working out really well
I am really enjoying how things are coming together with Archisketch. I needed an app that would allow me to create a drafted plan on top of a pdf background. The layers system works really well, and I am beginning to use the symbols library and create my own for re-use.
The learning curve was a bit bumpy but with some time it is really working for me and I’m enjoying the drawing process.
The video tutorials do not always provide the info I need BUT the email support has been amazing. I was on a deadline, kept running into problems that I could not solve and sent an email, I had a clear response within 1/2 hr. And when I thought my drawing had disappeared, they had me send the file and as it turned out, all was well. I continue to send emails with questions and really appreciate how responsive they are!
I am still learning ways to use Archisketch, it has been worth the effort and patience.
I’ve downloaded and experimented with others - SketchBook, Arrette, Procreate, Concepts, Morpholio, Adobe - and they all have excellent capabilities. However, Archisketch has a more complete assortment of the tools I need for landscape design drawing, in one place, than the others.
It is highly intuitive for a new user and the help screens linked to subject videos are the best instructional feature among all the apps I’ve used. 90% of all my questions, as a new user, have been anticipated by the developers in the help screens and linked videos. The other 10% are thoughtfully addressed by tech support (thank-you Reza).
I may continue to export my drawings to other apps for special added effects, but the more I dig into this app the more I discover it can do, and the less I need to look elsewhere.
This review from a senior now transitioning to digital drawing after 35 years in the the world of paper, pencil, pens and brushes.
Been looking for this for a long time!
I'm a consulting engineer, and I've been looking for an app like this for a long time, on whatever operating system. The easy dimension lines and ruler alone are super useful for me. The rest of the 2-d drawing is similar to other apps, and has more than enough features for me. I like how you can blend rough sketches with precision lines and shapes in layers. I don't currently do perspective drawing but I might start now!
The free version is generous and lets you really figure out if it's for you. I purchased the full everything, even though I don't need the color pack. I want to support development, and anyway it's literally 1/100 of a similar PC software package.
Go through the Vimeo tutorials to get the hang of things. (Never mind the typos :-) Highly, highly recommended.
