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.

Ratings and Reviews
If you own a 3-D printer...
If you own a 3-d printer, this program is going to be such an amazing addition to your tools! It is capable of a lot more with iPad Pro from what I can see, but but my iPad (not pro) runs this flawlessly, and the ease in which anyone can make anything with just a little practice is a hot feature too.
If you’re an artist, buy this. I felt like a pro after about 30 minutes, and I had my first prototype made for an idea in another 30 (of course, if you need precision, it’s probably best to use a computer and some sort of expensive CAD program). Either way, I have found this tool to be indispensable for the beginner as well as the pro 3D printer.
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.
Best sculpting app I've come across
I've tried many of the other available sculpting apps and this is definitely my favorite. The other apps weren't bad but they had their issues. A couple used too much processing power; causing my phone to heat up until the app crashed whenever I'd use it for more than 10 min.
This app hasn't crashed on me once.
It's the closest thing I've found to Sculptris for desktop.
All in all I love the app so I'm giving it a 5 stars my only issue or request would be to add a semi transparent marker that shows you the size of the area being affected as you move your stylus.
