IMPORTANT: Putty 3D requires iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 or any newer iPhone or iPad with iOS 11 or newer.
Putty is the best 3D sketchbook for artists and enthusiasts on the go. Whether you’re on holiday, on the train or just relaxing on the couch, Putty 3D is your perfect companion.
It uses the powerful graphics processor in your device to create a smooth and intuitive sculpting experience, exclusively on iOS.
Putty 3D supports Apple Pencil, 3D Touch and Wide Color, and has been optimized for iPad Pro and iPhone 7, meaning it can deliver bigger sculpting volumes and even smoother performance.
The built-in support for OBJ and STL export (only on iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 or newer devices) allows you to transfer your creations to modelling and animation packages on your PC or Mac, or you can even bring them into the real world through 3D printing (specifics and compatibility may vary depending on the printing hardware and software).
In a nutshell you can:
- Sculpt on the go with Apple Pencil and 3D Touch support for precise and pressure sensitive sculpting.
- Bring your creations into to your favourite modelling, animation or even 3D printing apps on PC or Mac using the built in OBJ and STL export (only on iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 or newer devices).
- Use materials like Plastic, Ceramic or even Gold to make your work shine (sometimes quite literally), all brought to life by physically based rendering techniques.
- Easily record videos of your work or take high resolution screenshots with optional camera effects.

Dev Please... UPDATED
Devs have since fixed the exporting issues. I am now able to bring my sculpt into any 3D program on my computer by emailing myself the file!
Before I review... I literally just spent 25 minutes doing a sculpt, and when I went to render a photo it completely closed the app. And I didn’t save.
I use Zbrush and been looking at this app and another for about a year now. Never wanted to spend $5 or $10 to get a stupid app that I would never use.
But truthfully, I think this app feels worth it especially with the option to have a stylist or something like apple pen.
-Fairly easy to use / play around with
-Familiar tools if you’re used to Digital Sculpting programs
-Affordable price for what you get
- apparently can just crash while exporting a photo (maybe while exporting the obj too)
- the buttons and switches have no title and the images are kind of hard to understand.
- as far as I know you can’t open the intro tutorial again, which is a missed success point.
- fingers and hand gets tired about 15 minutes in on your first few runs.
Overall worth for me.
Decent, but Not as good as Claimed...
I am a blender and forger user and decided to give putty a try just because it looked like it might be really good and it does a lot of things a lot better but not enough to keep or pull me over completely. What I like about putty mainly is the speedy sculpting which is very quick and responsive, it has fantastic lighting - the best I’ve ever seen on ios, camera control, visual mirroring. However, I am rather annoyed with everything else, it’s just not intuitive, makes no sense, nothing is recognizable by standard 3d modeling which isn’t friendly to most artists from other software unless you’ve never used any others so it is confusing until you try to play with and figure it out, a grab brush is a must to push and pull geometry - just the add subtract smooth cutting and extrusions aren’t enough, no landscape mode for iphone, no good tutorials other than the quick one or a few sped up demos which isn’t all that helpful, and can’t even texture paint. I’m gonna keep trying to get the hang of it anyway and will update my review if I change my mind about it later on but as a Blender 3d Artist I find putty more frustrating than forger and blender combined even though I know there’s a learning curve for everything.
I really want a refund.
It’s been a bit over 90 days so I can’t ask apple for the refund. I was extremely unhappy with this app! I tried and tried to use it but it just wasn’t working how I wanted it to. And don’t get me wrong, it’s a really well and professionally made app, and it’s fun to use and I’m sure others CAN actually use it. But I was just unhappy with it. All I can say is if you have the money, try it, you might like it!
